Season of Giving: Mobile Resources for Rural Folks

Helping Those On the Outskirts of Town

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.

Mobile Resource Bus

Run by the Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas, the Mobile Resource Bus offers extensive help to those in rural communities where help is not easily accessible. Each bus is stocked with the essentials of food and clothing, in addition, to help with rent, medical assistance, and community referrals to safety net programs.
