Leadership NEJC Holding "Birthday Box" Drive at Walmart Roeland Park
05/10/2019 09:54 AM
Mission, KS - Leadership NEJC will be participating in a community service “Birthday Box” drive. Part of the leadership curriculum is for students to organize and participate in class service projects. This coming week, in partnership with Walmart Roeland Park and the Kaw Valley Center (KVC), Leadership NEJC will be collecting materials for birthday parties for children ages 12 and up.
KVC Kansas exists to serve children and families in need because people matter and have inherent worth. They are a nonprofit organization that serves 30,000 Kansas children and adults each year through foster care case management, adoption and more. The children served have experienced abuse, neglect or other family challenges. For many children in foster care, it’s not a guarantee that they will receive gifts on their birthday. By participating in the NEJC Birthday Box Drive, you will play a major role in bringing joy to one of Kansas’ most vulnerable populations.
