Can’t find something? Let us help.
First, tell us where you’d like to make an impact:
Across all Resurrection locations, we no longer will accept general onsite donations. Instead, we’ll continue with focused drop-off events that will best serve our partners with just-in-time resources. This approach will allow all campuses and multiple ministries to share focused efforts to serve Kansas City.
Please continue to check in with cor.org/localimpact for details about our monthly initiatives and ways you can serve and donate directly to those on the front lines. If you have items to donate throughout the year we’d recommend taking items to the organizations below:

All Resurrection Campuses
This month we are collecting two of our most requested items from our clothing ministry partners - socks and underwear. And because it's hard to learn on an empty stomach, Church of the Resurrection's Partner Schools Ministry continues to bless classrooms with snacks.
Drop off your donations at any Resurrection campus on Saturday, April 17 from 9:00 - 11:00 am.
Want to volunteer at your campus? Visit our April 17th Serve Saturday sign-up and look for "Assist with monthly collection"
Not able or available to donate in person? You can help classrooms get the snacks they need by purchasing items from our Partner Schools Amazon Wishlist. Be sure to select "Gift Registry Address" when you checkout and your donation will be shipped directly to our team.

Imagine losing your home, your community, your job, your school, and the lives of close family members and friends. Any one these events would create turmoil, yet refugee families are living with the reality of all of these at once. Church of the Resurrection works with a variety of partners to address the needs of refugees around the world.
Donations provide tangible relief and serve to remind recipients that there are people who care and are willing to sacrifice to help make their lives better.
The Syrian civil war continues to create a humanitarian crisis of unprecedented scale. In Lebanon, the on-going crisis is sharply evident, as the small country is home to more than 1.5 million refugees, many of whom are school-aged children.
In partnership with the Church of the Resurrection, the Safe Spaces School in Saida, Lebanon held its grand opening on October 2, 2018, to serve more than 200 children — providing both educational and psycho-social support. Living up to its name, the school truly is a safe space where all are welcome and where a future with hope is made possible.

UNICEF is on the front lines of many crises around the world, serving its most vulnerable children. Church of the Resurrection donates funds to help in their efforts to provide education, health care, clean water and nutritional support to refugee children and families.

Shopping and eating locally means more of your money stays in the community, providing jobs and improving the economy. It can also mean a reduction in the environmental impact, compared to larger chain stores and restaurants. Here are some tips for shopping and eating locally:
Buy locally grown and produced food: Buying local is better for you, the environment, and the local economy. The average piece of produce in the U.S. travels 1,500 miles, while local food may only travel 100 miles (or less). When local farmers are well compensated they are less likely to sell their land to developers. This helps preserve green space that can draw down harmful carbon and reduce flooding. Farmers markets throughout the KC Metro area are open from spring to fall.
Patronize local restaurants that partner with local growers: Look for local restaurants that offer “farm to table” cuisine. You’ll support a local business while reducing the impact on the environment due to storing and transporting.
Look for items that are made locally, or Made in America: Local businesses typically consume less land and locate closer to residents than big chains. This means there is more green space to absorb heavy rains and less air pollution. In addition to providing more jobs, local companies provide a unique selection of products not available anywhere else. Buying from a local retailer also keeps 4 times the amount of money in the local economy compared to chains.
Join a CSA program: Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) creates a partnership between you and the farmer. Subscription plans allow you to become a shareholder of a local farm, and in return you enjoy a weekly share of food directly from the farm.
100% local Christmas: Commit to buying 100% of your Christmas presents locally. Supporting local vendors and shops improves the economy, supplies local jobs and lessens the impact on the environment caused by large chain stores, and you get to give unique and thoughtful gifts

Now more than ever families who are struggling can use a little extra help to meet their children's needs.
Even though children from most of our ongoing school partners are not meeting in person, we are working with their schools and the district to deliver the Backpacks for Hunger bags filled with non-perishable food for the weekend.
Join a small group of people on Wednesday afternoons at the Leawood campus for a 90-minute shift and help organize the food and participate in the filling of over 1,000 bags of food that will be delivered to seven schools across the city.
Safety precautions are in place, including reducing the number of volunteers serving at one time, raising the age requirement for participation, requiring face masks and asking screening questions.
If you are able to be on your feet and active for 90 minutes please join us. Those taking part in set up should be able to lift 10-15 lbs. Learn more and register here.
Other ways to serve:
All activities take place at Resurrection Leawood Campus, Building A, Lower Level Mission Space.

Using Psalm 4:8 as the guiding mission, the Beds Program provides new beds to children who don’t have beds of their own in Kansas City urban and suburban communities. Our purpose is to recognize and address the physical need for sleep, thus providing a sense of comfort, rest and peace. Through this coordinated demonstration of God’s love and provision, we will bring smiles and comfort to children and families. Our focus is to serve the children referred by Resurrection's partner school districts and specific mission partners.
Volunteers are needed to load/unload mattresses, greet participants and assist them in picking up linens and pajamas. This is a great serving opportunity for the whole family-appropriate for children 7 and older when accompanied by an adult. Please note this event takes place outside-dress accordingly!
Host a linen drive in your school, workplace, or neighborhood! New twin linens will be provided to school aged children who receive beds through the Program. If you need more information on the Program for your drive, please contact email@example.com.
Have access to free or inexpensive lumber? We are always looking for lumber to build our slat support structure. This structure is used in place of a box spring.
Don’t let a Kansas City child sleep on the floor tonight. Consider sponsoring a bed!
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
Please visit the Beds Ministry Donations page for more information about how to support this ministry with donations.
I will both lie down and sleep in peace; for you alone, O Lord, make me lie down in safety. -Psalm 4:8
