In the last 4 days, through the Greater Kansas City Community Foundation, SCS received two donations totalling $5,500. Thank you to those two foundations for helping us “keep the lights on” and purchase pantry supplies, client gasoline and prescriptions. March 30 thru April 3rd SCS helped clients with $90 rent, $100 prescriptions, $60 gasoline, $100 KS Gas Service, and spent $700 on food.
UPDATE for the week beginning April 6, 2020:
