On Thursday, July 16th, we will celebrate the 10th Anniversary of Kansas City’s Medicine Cabinet with our donors, Board members, agencies, vendors and friends! That first six months of operation in 2005, from July to December… 266 services were provided at a cost of $38,000. TODAY, in an average month, KCMC provides 345 services at a cost of $75,000. Please see the Medicine Cabinet tab for more information.


The forgotten pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters in your couch or your spare change jar can provide emergency medical assistance for Kansas Citians in need. The 2015 collection will feature some new events for coin collection. Keep watching for updates

CoinForTheCabinetLogoHere’s a recap of our November 2014 Coins for the Cabinet campaign! Loose change was dropped at four local businesses and four local schools last November. We thank Academie Lafeyette (Cherry and Oak Street), Blue Valley CAPS program, Spring Hill High School and University Academy for their clever collection ideas and generous donations. We are also grateful to the offices at NAIA Headquarters, QTI, Inc., Sowers CPA firm and Spangler Graphics for their generous contributions!

Contact us to participate in our November 2015 coin collection. Your school or company’s small change can add up to BIG change for those who need help!
