Here at Flatland, we want to offer a gentle reminder that the holidays are a season of giving, not just receiving. So our gift to you is a daily list of sometimes-obscure local charitable organizations that could use your help. From Dec. 24 to Jan. 1, we are providing brief descriptions of deserving charities and information about how you can contribute. We know there are many wonderful local charities, so we’re also providing a list of organizations featured this year on 90.9 The Bridge’s “Give Back Friday” segments. Our hope is that the “Season of Giving” feature becomes something of a holiday tradition here at Flatland, because there are so many groups that deserve the attention, and community needs never end.
The Chabad House Center of KC was founded in 1970 in Overland Park, Kansas. For the past 30 years, the Yashad Kosher Food Pantry has provided not only holiday food but also year-round help to the Jewish communities in need in the Kansas City area. The program is run by volunteers and is the headquarters for Chabad Lubavitch in the states of Kansas and Missouri, with special emphasis on the Greater Kansas City area.
