Bare Necessities Bags with Evolve Outreach & Uplift Organization

When : February 27 6:00 pm

Where : Sunnyside Elementary, Olathe

KindCraft, Evolve Outreach Inc. and Uplift Organization Inc. are partnering for the second year in a row to educate families about homelessness in Kansas City and assemble Bare Necessities bags.

Here’s how it works:

During check-in, your family will be given the number of bags that you selected during registration.  After a short introduction and presentation on homelessness, we will start putting the bags together! Each bag contains items such as gloves, a hat, snacks, a survival blanket, hot hands, a water bottle, chap stick,  and a rain poncho. After your family has assembled their bag(s), children will be given the opportunity to write a kind note or picture for the recipient of the bag.

After your family has finished assembling your Bare Necessities bag, Uplift Organization Inc. will take you on a tour of one of their outreach vans, which is used to deliver meals and urgent needs to thousands of people experiencing homelessness each year.

What happens after the event?

Evolve Outreach Inc. will directly distribute the Bare Necessities bags to individuals in Kansas City who are experiencing homelessness.

Are you interested in helping even more?

  • Uplift Organization needs children’s coats, hats, and gloves to help the KCMO police department. The police carry children’s coats, hats, gloves, etc. in their cars.  When they get in a situation where children are involved many times the children have to be removed from the home, but many times they don’t have warm enough clothes for winter time.
  • Uplift Organization also needs your plastic shopping bags. They use tons of these bags helping the homeless in KC and we know we can help them out with this need.
  • Please bring any of these items to the event on Feb. 27th!
