Spring Service Project

As a Kindermusik community, I would like us to be able to do a couple of service projects each year to help out the Kansas City community.

The Community of Christ Church, which houses our studio, is beginning a service project to collect items for the Center of Hope. The Center of Hope, run by the Community of Christ Church, is located in Kansas City, KS and houses a Food Pantry, Food Kitchen, Thrift Store, Commodity Distribution, and Homeless Outreach.

They are in need of supplies right now, and I know we can help. Through the entire month of May, you are invited to bring any of the items listed below when you come to class. There is a large barrel in the foyer at the bottom of the stairs for you to donate to. You can bring a few things, or you can bring something every week. I believe service projects such as this are a wonderful way to teach our children how to give back.

Here is a list of items needed if you would like to help.

Soups
Spaghetti sauce
Spam
Chili
Shampoo
Toilet tissue
Snack foods (for the homeless)
Individual foods (cup of soup, vienna sausage, stew, pudding)
Razors
Socks

I know at one time, they told me that the travel sizes of hygeine products were good because they could send those with the homeless.

I know the Center will appreciate any donations you make through the month of May!
