Sign repair/replace

We need your help to pay for the "Shawnee Community Services" sign to be replaced. Several months ago two parts of the sign ("Community Services") blew off in a storm. The month before the "Shawnee" portion had to be repaired due to storm damage for $650. We now have the plan to replace the sign with a better solution and the cost is $2920. The donate button is a simple way to contribute. Any amount will help. Thank you in advance. Sylvia is glad to provide more details if you call 913-268-7746 or email

School supplies

Again this year we are stuffing backpacks with basic school supplies. We have 150 children signed up. We understand that quite a few places are asking for school supply donations but we are hoping that if you have extra colored pencils, pencil pouches or scissors, that you would consider helping SCS complete our backpacks for these 150 children who do not have access to those other programs. Our collection deadline is August 1st. Thank you for any help you can give.

Excessive heat warning

NWS has issued an excessive heat warning beginning today through Saturday. The Heat index is predicted to be 105-110 degrees and humid. We will close the receiving area at noon Wednesday through Saturday this week. No staff or volunteers will be asked to work receiving for donations of household goods and furniture. This is for the health and safety of all concerned. We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your understanding. Thank you.

50% off sale

We are trying something new this week. Tuesday and Wednesday (July 16,17th) everything in the store that is more than a quarter will be 50% off the stickered price. Quarter items are still a quarter. Quarter items will not be discounted.
