I would like to pulicly thank the American Children's Society for coming to the aid of my family in Kansas City, MO. After enduring a heart breaking illness to out youngest child, which required our constant care and presence, our utilties and other major bills fell far behind. Our case worker at Children's Mercy Hospital referred our family to the local America Children's Society office and they immediately stepped in and provided much needed assistance. This was a blessing we will never forget. Thank you.
