This holiday season, in lieu of a holiday networking event, the DBIA Kansas City Chapter is supporting two local charities to help fight against poverty:
Big Brothers Big Sisters Kansas City works to clear the path to a child’s biggest possible future by matching them with a caring, adult mentor in a one-to-one friendship. “Bigs” help “Littles” ignite, empower and defend their potential by standing with them. DBIA is supporting BBBS through online donations.
HappyBottoms is the second charity DBIA is supporting this year both through online donations and item drop off. HappyBottoms provides a monthly supply of 50 diapers or 30 training pants to low-income children through 54 social service agency sites. Our partners provide healthcare, emergency assistance, education, childcare, and case management services to families in need. Our partner model has a ripple effect on families by providing access to other services that will help lift them out of poverty. Currently, diapers, wipes, and creams can be drop off at McClure/Garney office at 1700 Swift St., North Kansas City, MO 64116. More locations to come!
Donations and drop offs can be made through December 18, 2020.
