Christmas in October
Each year, the MCAKC Young Professionals Committee coordinates our volunteer project as we partner with "Christmas in October" for a day of community service. Our volunteers paint exterior of homes, do yard work, and outdoor home repairs.
Annual Charity Golf Outing
Each year, MCAKC selects a Kansas City Area nonprofit to be the sole beneficiary of funds raised from its charity golf outing. Past organizations include: Fight Dirty Foundation, Care Beyond the Boulevard, BoysGrow, Kansas City Free Eye Clinic, Kansas City Rescue Mission, Variety Kansas City, Farmer’s House of Weston, Community Assistance Council, Operation Breakthrough, Down Syndrome of Greater Kansas City, Lake Mary Center, Children’s Center for the Visually Blind, ALS Association of Kansas City, Children’s Mercy Hospital, and Susan G. Komen Foundation of Kansas City. Since 2007, this event has raised over $420,000 for area nonprofits.
Month of Giving Campaign for Harvesters
During COVID, MCAKC volunteers participated in our Month of Giving Campaign where they donated food, their time, and money to Harvesters. With our members' support, we donated $53,330 to Harvesters and provided 160,185 meals to support hunger relief in Kansas City. In addition to monitary donations, 10 of our signatory and associate members collected 2,877 lbs of food and volunteered 68 hours at Harvesters' Warehouse.
Holiday Toy Drive
During the holidays, the Young Professionals Committee has coordinated a toy drive in support of Operation Breakthrough. Special thanks to area contractors, suppliers, and partner organizations who participated in the 2018 collection. Additional thanks to those who volunteered in the distribution of toys.
