On Thursday, July 16th, we celebrated 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.


THANK YOU!  THANK YOU! We had a great wrap up to our collection week down at Union Station. Sister Act Face Painting and Bumble Balloons kept all the kiddos happy and our spokesperson, Frank White graciously signed autographs for the many fans who waited in line. The Wolf 106.5 was on scene with their live remote and thanks to HCA Midwest division for the blood pressure screening table. We are very grateful to all who participated. Entertainment was provided by the Jazz Ensemble from Spring Hill High School and the Strolling Strings of Shawnee Mission North High School. Collection and counting is still going on... so stay tuned for a final tally from our participating schools and businesses! We appreciate all 
of your support of Kansas City's Medicine Cabinet and our annual collection week; Coins for the Cabinet.

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 be held November 2-7 and will feature two new events and a collection point at historic Union Station. Please see the Medicine Cabinet tab for all the details as they become available.


Our loyal friends at Academie Lafayette, Spring Hill High School and University Academy will be joined by several new schools from the Kansas City, Missouri district. We are looking forward to working with all of them!

We are still looking for some businesses who would like to participate in this weeklong coin collection!

Contact us to participate in our November 2016 coin collection. Your school or company’s small change can add up to BIG change for those who need help!
