Leawood Chamber of Commerce issued the following announcement on Nov. 12.
United Way of Greater Kansas City is celebrating Giving Tuesday with their #LoadsofLoveKC program, and are hoping to make their biggest impact yet!
They aim to raise $20,000 in 24 hours to purchase washers, dryers and laundry supplies for area schools in an effort to help increase student attendance.
Every day, students across the KC region miss class because they don’t have access to clean clothes. With your help, United Way KC can provide on-site washer/dryer resources that will not only provide kids with laundered clothes, but provide tools for life-skills classrooms, and give the added support they need to consistently attend class and be ready to learn.
YOU CAN GIVE!
A gift to #LoadsofLoveKC is the most direct way to help keep kids in the classroom. United Way of Greater Kansas City has successfully reached their goal for two years running, and are aiming to make 2018 their third consecutive year!
No gift is too small! Any amount of support will help increase attendance and provide kids with the vital resource of clean clothing.
You can make a donation by texting ‘LoveKC’ to 41-444 or donate online now.
