Support and Serve

Our BookMobile focuses on schools with at least 75% free and reduced lunch recipients. In addition, we support many after school and summer school programs in underserved areas.

Our Backpacks for Hunger program provides nutritious food to help students get through the weekend and return to school on Monday ready to focus on their schoolwork.

Our Beds ministry provides new beds to children who don’t have beds of their own in Kansas City urban and suburban communities. Our focus is to serve the children in our partner schools. 

Bless the Teacher is a ministry where volunteers write a monthly note of encouragement to a staff member at one of our Partner Schools. If you enjoy writing brief notes of support that will brighten and bless someone’s day, this ministry is perfect for you! The commitment is monthly, September – May.
