Help KCK Public School Students This Winter!
Published on November 17, 2023
Many of the children most in need in our community depend on the meals they receive at school. When school is out for an extended period of time, their needs are often not met.
The Kansas City Kansas Police Department, the Kansas City, Kansas Fire Department, the Wyandotte County Sheriff's Office and the Kansas City, Kansas Public Schools Police Department want to make sure no child goes hungry during the upcoming winter break by competing in a Battle of the Badges Food Drive. A simple can of chicken or tuna can go a long way in providing a healthy meal for a child so that is what we will be collecting!
Next time you're at the grocery store, pick up a can or two (or more!) and then drop them off at one of KCKPD's three report desk collection locations:
Headquarters, 700 Minnesota Ave.
East Patrol, 849 N. 47th St.
South Patrol, 2200 Metropolitan Ave.
Donations can also be dropped off at all KCKFD stations!
Donations will be accepted through December 1, 2023 and distributed to students prior to the start of winter break. Donations will be distributed to students attending Mark Twain, McKinley and Quindaro Elementary Schools in the Kansas City, Kansas Public Schools District.
If you prefer to shop from home, scan the QR code on the flyer below and make your purchase from our Amazon Food Drive Wish List. Your donation will be delivered directly to us here at Police Headquarters to Maj. William Wallace who oversees our community outreach efforts.
Thanks in advance for helping us make sure that no child will go hungry!
