Kansas City Credit Union recently held a school supply donation drive for Della Lamb Community Services, an organization that has been serving low-income Kansas Citians since 1897. The school supplies donations help low-income, Kansas City school-aged kids whose families cannot afford to shop for back-to-school items.
With almost $200 raised during the month of July, KCCU went out and purchased everything from crayons, pens and pencils to paper, notebooks, socks and toothbrushes for the kids!
“It was so rewarding seeing the big smiles on staff faces when I dropped off the donation to Della Lamb Community Services on behalf of Kansas City Credit Union,” commented Deborah Darby, marketing director.
Should any other credit unions wish to make additional school supply donations to Della Lamb, whether it be a monetary donation or actual supplies, please visit the Della Lamb Community Services website for more information. The work they do for Kansas City’s inner city families is quite amazing.
