A few months ago we were asked to be part of an event in Kansas City that we decided to decline. Through our partnership with ASERCA the decision was made not to participate in this particular event.
Today, a news story was brought to my attention about the event:
The organization is said to be planning to issue a statement soon.
I wanted to take this opportunity to remind our supporters that EVERYTHING that ICT S.O.S. does stays local. We work with local organizations in the Wichita, KS area that are directly serving victims and at-risk youth. All donations are made directly to local agencies and all in-kind donations of items such as clothing, supplies, etc. go directly to these agencies as well.
Right now, ICT S.O.S. is completely volunteer and has no overhead costs. As we continue to grow, that may change but the local focus will not.
For a list of some of the agencies we work with, or to make donations directly to them, please visit the Support Our Mission page.
As services and agencies close down, the need is greater than ever for kids in our city. The weather is getting colder and donations are down at most local agencies. If you are considering a gift before the end of the year, PLEASE consider giving locally.
Some immediate needs are listed on our Volunteer Opportunities page.
