Creating change for school children in Greater Kansas City


In our third year of celebrating Giving Tuesday through our #LoadsofLoveKC program, we’re going to make the biggest impact yet! Help us achieve our goal of raising $20,000 in 24 hours to purchase washers, dryers and laundry supplies for area schools.

Every day, students across our region miss class because they don’t have access to clean clothes. With your help, we can provide kids with not only laundered clothes, but the added support they need to consistently attend class and be ready to learn.

You can give!

A gift to #LoadsofLoveKC is the most direct way to help keep kids in the classroom. We have successfully reached our goal for two years running, and we’re aiming to make 2018 our third consecutive year! Make your donation by texting ‘LoveKC’ to 41-444 or donate online now.

And there’s more you can do to help us make this a success:

Join Us on Facebook

Invite your friends and family to the event page, and ask them to share the event with their social circles. During the holiday, let your friends and family know about this unique cause. You can be the face of change!

Adding the #LoadsOfLoveKC Facebook profile picture is easy. Click 'edit' on your profile picture and click 'add frame.’ If you like the UWGKC page on Facebook, you can simply select the #GivingTuesday overlay. If you DON’T already like the page, search ‘United Way’ and choose the #GivingTuesday overlay.

This week is the time to make change happen for several area schools in our community. Make a gift and help spread the message. Together, we can reach our $20,000 goal and provide kids with access to clean clothes and their best chance to attend class!
