We are dedicated to building and supporting strong communities in Kansas City and throughout the United States. Directed by our employee-led Charitable Contributions Committee, we contribute time and resources to charitable endeavors focused on empowering communities and helping children and those who are unable to help themselves. It is our privilege and our responsibility to support organizations that are making a remarkable difference.
We are proud to partner with the following organizations:
St. Jude leads the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other deadly diseases. Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing and food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live. St. Jude freely shares the breakthroughs it makes, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children. We are proud to be the St. Jude Dream Home Builder in Kansas City and to sponsor the annual St. Jude Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer.
Since we began our partnership with St. Jude, we have raised more than $4.5 million for the children of St. Jude.
Hunger knows no boundaries. In Kansas and Missouri, one in seven people is food insecure. Food insecurity means that even if a family has food today, they do not know if they will have food tomorrow or if there will be enough to feed the entire family. These families turn to assistance programs such as food pantries and homeless shelters for help. Keeping these programs supplied with nutritious food is no easy task.
Harvesters is a regional food bank serving a 26-county area of northwestern Missouri and northeastern Kansas. They provide food and related household products to more than 620 not-for-profit agencies including emergency food pantries, community kitchens, homeless shelters, and children’s homes.
We are proud to aid Harvester’s in their mission by contributing our financial support of their programs and by volunteering our time and energy individually and together as a team to help sort and package food to be disbursed to those in need.
Nearly 15,000 children are in Missouri’s foster care system because their parents cannot provide care for them. Sibling groups often become separated and many children experience frequent moves from foster family to foster family, with little understanding of what it means to have long-term stability.
Drumm Farm Center for Children is a special place that children and young adults can call home. Drumm Farm provides programs and services that support forever family environments, emotional and physical well-being, educational opportunities and personal growth.
We have supported the work of Drumm Farm Center for Children since 2012. In 2014, our architects donated their time and talents to provide Drumm Farm with a comprehensive design for the planned expansion of their campus. We are proud to continue aiding Drumm Farm in their mission to help children in foster care, homeless young adults and those aging out of foster care build successful lives.
