Giving the Basics provides the necessities of life not covered by government assistance programs, things most people take for granted such as laundry soap, shampoo, deodorant, toilet paper and other personal care hygiene products.

Kansas City Atheist Coalition volunteers will help with sorting and packaging the donations. This is a great opportunity to introduce children to volunteering alongside their guardian. Please wear clothes you don’t mind getting dirty, and sturdy closed-toe shoes.

We’ll meet at the Quik Trip at 3101 Southwest Boulevard KCMO by 8:45, then drive up the hill together. GTB offers a short video before we start so we can see how our labor will impact people in our community. After we finish at 11, we will eat and socialize at Sabor Azteca, just a short drive away at 542 Southwest Boulevard in KCKS.
