I have volunteered for this organization since it's inception. Through the generosity of the teachers in a Wyandotte County school district, friends, family, small businesses and strangers, gifts have been provided for almost 4,000 children in the area over the last 15 years. Medicine, eye glasses, beds, and help with an overdue utility bill have also been provided. 100% of the donations goes directly to helping children and families. There are NO administrative costs. Teachers, support staff and administration, people who work with the children on a daily basis, are the ones who recommend help for the kids and their families. If you want to help a local charity, this is the one!
