Review for Assistance League of Kansas City, Gladstone, MO, USA

Rating: 5 stars

ALKC is making a difference in the lives of children and families in Kansas City through several philanthropic programs that provide new school clothing, backpacks, school supplies and other necessities for children in need, teaches practical skills to children home alone or away from home, gives teddy bears to children in hospitals, offers clothing and support to victims of sexual assault, and supports seniors in area nursing homes.

One of our largest progrms is the Operation School Bell program which provided new clothing and supplies to over 2000 needy and at-risk elemenary and middle school students in 2010. There is nothing better than assisting these children as they choose their new clothes! They are so excited and proud.

The only changes I would make to ALKC would be to have more volunteers to help us make positive differences in the lives of needy children and familes in our community.

Role:  Volunteer & I volunteer at Operation School Bell, The ReSale Shop (Assistance League's main fundraiser) and I write grant applications for ALKC.
