Charity Wednesdays - A Good Excuse to Clean out Your Kitchen Cabinets

Need a good reason to clean out your kitchen cabinets?  Think you just might not need 3 garlic presses?

Well, this month local Whole Foods Market stores are partnering with an organization that provides foster care services in Kansas, KVC Behavioral Health, Inc (KVC) by sponsoring a kitchen equipment drive.   From now until the end of April, donate your unwanted kitchen gear (with manuals, if you have them) to any Whole Foods Market store in Overland Park.

When young adults age out of foster care and begin life on their own, they often don't have the simple cooking skills, and money to purchase basic equipment, necessary to provide themselves with affordable, nutritious meals.  Programs run by KVC help teach young adults basic life skills, including cooking.

So take those unused muffin tins, cookie sheets, casserole dishes, etc. (no knives!) out of that hard-to-reach place in your kitchen and give them a prime spot in a deserving young adult's first apartment.
