Exciting News from Caring for Kids
Thank you to our generous donors who have helped Caring for Kids receive the full match needed for a matching grant of $25,200. These funds will help Caring for Kids connect 14 more under-resourced schools with great community partners.
Kids who are in poverty face enormous challenges to get an education. We have seen the impact that caring community partners make when they serve together to meet real needs in an under-resourced school. In just two years the Caring for Kids team launched 110 under-resourced schools into strategic partnership with 104 churches and 56 businesses! We currently serve in six school districts and have mobilized nearly 800 volunteers into the schools. Not only do great community partners invest their time but they also invest their resources directly into the schools. In two years almost $200,000 in resources were invested into the schools by the Caring for Kids partners.
Great community/school partnerships demonstrate to the kids and their families that we believe the children can achieve their dreams and their future is full of promise. Thank you for caring for our Kansas City kids!
