“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.”
This Leo Buscaglia quote encapsulates our February when the Kansas City community gallantly gathered to SPREAD their effort, funds, and THE LOVE to feed their neighbors in need.
Per Jo Hickey, JFS Food Pantry Director, “I am pleased to announce that we had 19 known groups contribute 2,982 pounds of love to be spread throughout Greater Kansas City.”
We would especially like to thank these community members for their donations:
