If you, like many people in the country, are looking for more ways to help the victims of the tragic tornado that struck Joplin, MO on Sunday and the volunteers who are helping them we have some:
Cash for the Red Cross
We’re collecting money for the American Red Cross of Greater Kansas City at both of our Cafes: 6223 Brookside Boulevard, Kansas City, MO and 4511 W. 119th Street, Leawood, KS.
We’re accepting bottled water, clean clothes, new toiletries and non-perishable food items at our PLANT (1204 W. 27th Street @ SW Boulevard) during business hours, 8 a.m.- 5 p.m. today through Thursday and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Friday. If you’re bringing a large quantity, please call ahead of time at 816-931-4000. We’re also trying to get these items on a truck already going down to Joplin (so if you know of someone who can help out with that, let us know) but if need be, we’ll drive them down ourselves.
You can buy the the Greater Red Cross of Kansas City’s “Morning Rescue” Blend or the Community Blood Center’s “Every Vital Drop” Blend from our Causes page. 10% of each sale will go back to the organization that helped create the blend.
