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.

Fancy’s Fund

In May of 2014, Fancy, a beloved Akita at the Humane Society of Greater Kansas City passed away, but not without leaving an impact. In her honor, the HSGKC established this fund in her memory for senior dogs, cats and other aging pets to provide special care and help get them adopted into forever homes.
