Take a second to learn how our newest intern develop a love for service.
In the fall of 2017, Hurricane Maria became the tenth-most intense Atlantic hurricane on record, tearing through the Caribbean area for over a two-week stretch. Center of that devastation, and perhaps the most damaged by it, was the island of Puerto Rico. To better understand the devastation, as well as how the Kansas City community can help with recovery, we sat down with KC resident and PR native Lizmarie Garcia.
After last year's record-setting drive of 8,848 pairs, we we're hoping to hit the 10,000 mark in 2017. Thanks to the 74 groups and individuals that participated this year, we we're able to zoom past that mark for the first time ever.
Did you know socks are the most needed item among homeless shelters? In order to help combat this common problem, Uncover KC is excited to announce that we will be running our annual Socktober campaign for the fifth consecutive year.
It also just so happened that this evolution coincided with our KC2040 partnership, which leads to today’s exciting news — we’ve officially merged to form Uncover KC. Uncover KC is the culmination of years of working in the heart of our communities, seeing first hand what individuals want to do and what organizations need.
