Saturday, June 11, 10:00AM - 4:00PM
Soroptimist International of Kansas City Northland is a global volunteer network of women with a mission to improve the lives of women and girls in need.
One of the many ways it works toward this mission is with its "Suitcases for Kids" service project, wherein gently used suitcases, duffle bags and backpacks are collected for women and children in need.
The suitcase service project allows the club to provide these individuals a dignified way to carry their belongings when moving from and to shelters and foster care locations. Without the luggage donations, they often end up using black trash bags.
Some of the agencies the club has serviced include Synergy Services, SafeHaven, Clay and Platte County Foster Care Programs, Ozanam Home for Girls and The Good Samaritan Center of Excelsior Springs.
So please check your closets and attics, and bring any items you’d like to donate on Saturday, June 11, between 10:00am and 4:00pm, to The Grove at Zona Rosa. It will be greatly appreciated! For questions regarding donations, please send an email to SIKansasCityNorthland@soroptimist.net.
