In July of 2016, KANSAS CITY’S MEDICINE CABINET will note its 11th year of operation. As of October, 2016, a total in excess of $5.8 million dollars has provided more than 30,000 emergency medical services. One million dollars has been allocated for services in 2016, but the numbers at the start of the fourth quarter indicate that more than $1,000,000 will be spent. Through September nearly 3,000 people have been been helped at a cost of $864,000. This is 150 more people and $170,500 more dollars spent than at the same time in 2015. The need continues to rise. Won’t you consider a donation to the Medicine Cabinet today?

In November 2016, local schools and businesses participated in our annual coin collection for Kansas City’s Medicine Cabinet. We are grateful to those who participated in this fund raiser where 100% of every COIN or BILL collected goes directly to helping a person in KC who is having a medical crisis. There is a full list of all the businesses and schools who served as collection points on the Medicine Cabinet website. In November 2017… your school or company’s small change can add up to BIG change for those who need help! Please consider joining our team and we’ll bring you a collection jar. Thank you!
