• Thanksgiving Dinner and Baskets

    Every year George Washington Carver Dual Language Elementary continues a longstanding tradition during their Thanksgiving event: "Taste of Carver." During this event, families are welcomed to come and bring a covered dish and/or dessert. The families sit together in the gymnasium and play table-top games, color, listen to music, and dance. We are grateful for our Caring for Kids partners, who provided baskets for the all-school raffle that included a turkey, stuffing, vegetables, and a dessert.

  • Running Really Fast - Yes, You Can!

    One of our Partnership Directors, Porsche Seals, was at a school recently when new shoes were given to three children in great need. The church partner at the school learned of the family's need and immediately provided the new shoes. The oldest boy initially rejected the shoes because he didn't have "matching socks." However, his little brother revealed that they had no socks. Socks were quickly provided and the shoes were received with enthusiasm. The hesitant older brother commented that these were the "cushioniest" socks he had ever had and began dancing just a bit. The younger boy looked at his feet and said, "I think I can run really fast in these shoes." Inspired by his response, Porsche said, Oh, yes, I think you can!"

    Never underestimate the impact of what you are doing. Thank you for being a voice that says, "Yes, you can!" to the children of Kansas City.

  • Community Supports Schools through School Supply Collections

    Many community partners have been gathering school supplies and/or backpacks to meet the needs of students at schools throughout the Kansas City metro. Pictured are supplies from Vida Abundante and Wesley United Methodist Church to Frances Willard Elementary in Kansas City, KS, and backpacks and supplies from Indian Heights United Methodist Church to Westridge Middle School, a new partnership in the Shawnee Mission School District.
