Public Charities and Foundations Benefit California Communities

Deliver vital community services
The American Red Cross South Central Southeast Kansas Chapter utilizes a pool of diverse compassionate individuals who carry out the mission of the American Red Cross. The American Red Cross in Kansas includes 3 local chapters, 1 service center at Fort Riley and 3 blood donation centers.

Give voice to the people they serve
Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland represents troops across 80 counties in the state, serving 11,700 girls and adults. Kansas Girl Scouts have distributed more than 100,000 packages of cookies to members of the military and their families or to local charities like the Kansas Food Bank and Catholic Charities since 2010. The proceeds also go back into the community for the girls’ leadership programs.

Contribute to vibrant communities
The Haskell Foundation helps fund the unmet needs of the Haskell Indian Nations University, a tribal university located in Lawrence for members of more than 140 federally recognized Native American tribes. This financial support for the students who receive both associate and baccalaureate degrees is critical, in addition to the appropriated funds from the Bureau of Indian Education.

Advance solutions for challenges facing society
The Medical Loan Closet of Wichita serves the community by loaning Durable Medical Equipment to the underserved and individuals who have issues with their insurance. The primary source of the DME comes from volunteers in Wichita and the surrounding area. These very generous donations have made the Medical Loan Closet’s assistance to the underserved possible.
