Tuesday, April 1st
12:00 AM - 12:00 AM

Please bring new or gently used kitchen equipment to donate to the local youth of the KVC who are exiting foster care to live independently.  Your donation helps these youth to be able to cook in their new home, which encourages avoiding fast food and making healthier food choices.  Please bring the instruction manuals whenever possible and attach to items.  Suggested donations are pots, pans, can openers, mixing bowls, measuring cups, mixing spoons, baking sheets, etc.  No knives please; we don't want anyone to get hurt transporting the items.  Drive runs the whole month of April at both Whole Foods Market locations in Overland Park, KS.  Learn more about the KVC at kvc.org.  Thank you!
