Merry Christmas From Giving The Basics
Dear Dignity Helpers,
MERRY CHRISTMAS! It may be December but it is anything but cold around Giving the Basics warehouse. With all the volunteers help, we are sorting, counting and casing up products for the pantry locations in the KC Metro area and beyond. The companies and schools answering the call for human dignity products has been astounding and Giving the Basics is proud to recognize all they have done. We can't wait to see the success that AMC Theatres, P1 Contractors, Excel Constructors, Johnson Controls, Waters Davidson Dentistry, the De Soto ACCESS group have with their product drives this month. We will keep you posted! It is because you are getting the word out there for people to join in,that we are successfully strengthening Kansas City at the most basic level of need. Thank you ALL!
Our Giving the Basics family is growing by leaps and bounds.
What an Inspiration
AMAZING - Caden is a pretty special 14 year old boy. Instead of presents for his birthday, he asked his party guests to bring toilet paper for Giving the Basics. What a gift he gave!!
Angels on Earth
Mary and Gary Imming knew we needed flatbeds so, not only did they build them, they delivered them too. And yes it was Service with two smiles!
Way to Go!
Ascension Catholic School had a drive to remember and they came down to our warehouse and worked. What a great bunch of kids!
Paying it Forward
Cedar Hills Elementary decided to make the admission to their school play a human dignity product. The kids did a fabulous job "playing around" and helping the poor at the same time.
Nothing Like a Little Healthy Competition
The Manhattan Kansas Catholic schools and parishes got together to have a product drive for Giving the Basics. They had a friendly competition where everyone wins in the end.
Packaged with Love
St. James Academy heard we needed volunteers so they loaded a bus and headed our way. They helped load the trucks on Dignity Day and then stayed to help us for a couple hours. We stood in awe as they formed a circle and prayed in our warehouse and talked about the things they learned by helping us.
All's Fair When Your Helping Others
Bob Hamilton Plumbing had a Beat the Broncos event at their plumbing shop. You could take a sledge hammer to an old donated Bronco Truck if you brought something for Giving the Basics. So Fun!!
