Here at Flatland, we want to offer a gentle reminder that the holidays are a season of giving, not just receiving. So our gift to you is a daily list of sometimes-obscure local charitable organizations that could use your help. From Dec. 24 to Jan. 1, we are providing brief descriptions of deserving charities and information about how you can contribute. We know there are many wonderful local charities, so we’re also providing a list of organizations featured this year on 90.9 The Bridge’s “Give Back Friday” segments. Our hope is that the “Season of Giving” feature becomes something of a holiday tradition here at Flatland, because there are so many groups that deserve the attention, and community needs never end.
Since being founded in 2007, Green Works has grown into a program that empowers Kansas City’s future leaders to care and contribute to a healthier environment around them. It has provided more than 15,000 internships, planted more than 4,000 native shrubs in Kansas City, Missouri, and serves 150 students a year.
Fun fact: Green Works is also a past KCPT American Graduate Champion focusing on the improvement of the environment for the future.
