As we approach our 13th anniversary of operation in July of 2018, in excess of $1.5 million is projected to be needed for distribution of Medicine Cabinet services during this calendar year. More than 4,000 Kansas Citians are expected to be helped throughout this year with medical services that they cannot afford. Short-term crisis-related medical services in the areas of emergency dental issues, prescription assistance, eye care and glasses, hearing aids, diabetic care and durable medical equipment, such as wheelchairs, are included in the program. The need continues to rise. Won’t you consider a donation to the Medicine Cabinet today?

Poor oral health affects more than a person’s smile. Bacteria and infections can lead to heart disease, dementia, pneumonia and complications for diabetes. The path to better health is preventive care. The Smile KC campaign goal is to collect at least 10,000 new toothbrushes and tubes of toothpaste. Several metro area dental offices are participating, and we’re holding quarterly public events where you can donate new toothbrushes and tubes of toothpaste to be distributed throughout the metro area.

November 6-10, was designated as the 2017 Coins for the Cabinet week. Many local schools participated in our annual coin collection for Kansas City’s Medicine Cabinet. We are grateful to those who have faithfully 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. Your small change can add up to BIG change for those who need help! See KCMedicineCabinet.org for more details. Thank you!
