Assistance League of Kansas City - President's Message

This year the theme of Assistance League of Kansas is VOLUNTEERING TIME...ENRICHING LIVES.  We are a national organization made up of 120 chapters putting caring and commitment into action.  We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that seeks to fulfill specific unmet needs of children and adults in Kansas City through our philanthropic programs.

These programs provide clothing and supplies to elementary, middle and high school students, friendship and support to senior residents of Northland nursing facilities, clothing and supplies to assault survivors, teddy bears to comfort children in crisis, scholarships to graduating Northland high school students and a personal safety curriculum to 3rd and 4th graders throughout the greater Kansas City area.  I invite you to explore our website for more information about our programs and read client reviews about our services at

We appreciate those who have supported our efforts through financial donations, grants, shopping at THE ReSALE SHOP or making donations of gently used items of clothing and household goods.  We also appreciate our community volunteers and those with whom we have formed partnerships. 
We look forward to serving our community in 2018-2019.

Penny Merrill
President 2018-2019
