Donations are delivered monthly to local pantries and urban ministries to help feed those in the Kansas City area who are hungry or food insecure.
Donations in any amount will be used to purchase needed food in bulk or supplemental funding for our pantries to purchase proteins, produce and other items.
How much should I donate? Here is a general guideline of how far your money can go to feeding an average family of 4 when we purchase in bulk:

We are in the process of launching a mobile food pantry that will be used to expand our efforts in stopping hunger in communities in need more efficiently, effectively, and just in time.
The Food Mobile will visit food deserts in the KC area. People in these areas typically are low-income and have to travel farther to find healthy food options. The Food Mobile will provide hungry people in the Kansas City area with fresh, nutritious food and a dignified shopping experience for many years to come.
You can donate to our Food Mobile efforts using the donation information above.

The need for affordable housing is immense, and the lasting impact homeownership can have on families and individuals is undeniable. We are excited to be partnering with Habitat for Humanity of Kansas City to build new affordable homes. The homes are not free – each family who partners with Habitat is making a personal and financial investment in their future.
Habitat for Humanity
There are more than 13,000 families in Kansas City struggling to find affordable housing. Habitat for Humanity of Kansas City partners with families to provide strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter. Through this partnership, each family has the opportunity to build or rehab and purchase their own decent home with an affordable zero-interest mortgage. Help be part of the solution by volunteering with Habitat for Humanity.
The Resurrection Housing and Construction Ministry has an opportunity to help a local family adapt their home to accommodate the needs of Gabe, an eight year old boy with Cerebral Palsy. We are helping to build an addition onto their home with handicap accommodations for a new bedroom and bathroom. There is a need for skilled and unskilled volunteers to help with all aspects of the framing and finishing for this project. Immediate need is for a framing contractor or a framing crew leader to guide a volunteer team in early July 2020. For more detailed information or to get connected please contact Bob at firstname.lastname@example.org

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.
