Higher M-Pact is an amazing Kansas City organization whose mission is to "instill hope and inspiration in high-risk urban youth and in every life we encounter." KC CAN! has partnered with Higher M-Pact on projects that address specific areas of need in fulfilling its mission. To learn more about Higher M-Pact, visit www.highermpact.org.
Back to School Project
KC CAN! partners every year with Higher M-Pact for a Back To School drive to provide school supplies and clothes to at-need children in Kansas City, Missouri. In previous years, KC CAN! has sponsored 25 to 40 children with school uniforms, shoes and basic school supplies. These are children who are in desperate need of these items to start the school year. If you are interested in sponsoring a child or making a donation, please contact Mike Keegan at (913) 568-5334 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Back to School Drive is a very eye-opening event and further reinforces how KC CAN! projects can make a significant difference in the life of a child. Without this support, some of these schoolchildren likely would be without the materials they need to enable a useful learning environment as they begin their classes.
Computer Lab & Library
KC CAN! recently donated $11,400 to Higher M-Pact. The donation is part of KC CAN!’s continued contribution to the development of a computer learning center and allows purchase of new computing equipment and software to enhance the learning experience. KC CAN! had previously partnered with Higher M-Pact to renovate the computer lab and a reading library.
KC CAN! is excited with the progress of the facility, staffing and the education programs. A grand opening and press event was held in March to celebrate the facility and programs. KC CAN! wishes to recognize SE Fox for making generous contributions of material and labor for flooring. Higher M-Pact operates directly in the communities identified as “high risk” for youth and uses the facility for educational programs to positively impact youth in the area.
