Anthony Volunteer Committee – Giving Back to Our Community

Volunteering with Project Warmth KC to Keep Our Residents Warm

project warmth kcProject Warmth® KC is an initiative to collect new and gently used coats and blankets as well as cash donations to help people in need during extremely cold weather.  Project Warmth® KC aims to ensure lives are not lost to the frigid cold or sweltering heat of the Midwest.

All coats, blankets, hats and gloves that employees of Anthony PHC collect are distributed free of charge to recipients by The Salvation Army. Funds raised also help residents with expensive air conditioning/utility bills in the hot summer months and cold weather heating/utility bills in the winter.  

You can help too – click here for drop off locations and instructions for donating financially.

Volunteering with Happy Bottoms Diaper Bank

Anthony PHC is happy to make baby bottoms dry and comfortable through their work with the Happy Bottoms Diaper Bank.  One third of area families struggle to afford diapers for their children, so diaper banks play a very important role to the well being of our area children.  Click here to donate to Happy Bottoms.

Volunteering with the Red Cross to Hold Blood Drives
