MARGARET BROWN LEGACY FUND
The majority of our participants are Medicaid-eligible. However, we have many in our local community who do not qualify for Medicaid and are so income-challenged that they struggle with paying for prescription medications and basic needs. Your financial contributions make it possible to offer the Margaret’s Place experience to an elderly or disabled person who does not have the means to participate. Please contact Patricia McCreary to discuss your planned giving.
ADOPT A SCHOOL
Every year since we opened our doors, Margaret’s Place has helped a local charter school bless students during the holidays. We provide 1-2 gifts for each child and dinner boxes for 60-80 families, using Harvester’s families-in-need list.
ADOPT A SENIOR
Our senior and disabled population is largely underserved. The culture at Margaret’s Place is to provide whatever is needed. To this end, we adopt several individuals each year and gift them with 10 things they need and 10 things they want. We do this during the holiday season and have a big celebration. Our adopted seniors and their “sponsors” find this program very rewarding. We’d love to welcome you as a sponsor.
HYDRATE THE HOMELESS
Margaret’s Place partners with local non-profits during the summer months to deliver water to the homeless. We drive our bus around KC and deliver water, sunscreen and lip balm to homeless camps. Our volunteers also walk through streets and get cold water in the hands of homeless people. Cases of water, sunscreen, lip balms, and granola bars are always needed and we love our volunteers.
Do you have a green thumb or enjoy gardening? Working alongside our program participants will be a fun and rewarding experience where you can literally see the fruits of your labor.
Do you enjoy helping people feel special and have a heart for the elderly? Sit down and play a game, eat lunch, or just get to know someone. The rewards are extraordinary.
