#GivingTuesday, celebrated on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, has since grown into a global movement of fund-raising for nonprofit groups; collection drives for food, blood and clothing banks; and even random acts of kindness. Last year $117 million was raised for charities in more than 70 countries.
Support local non-profits right here in Downtown Overland Park this #GivingTuesday!
Growing Futures Early Education Center
Growing Futures Early Education Center relies heavily on contributions from individuals and volunteer support. The federal government requires a community match for its grants to our programs. Federal funds have been flat for the last several years, while the cost of living continues to increase. To meet the needs of our existing families and to add others to the program who are currently waiting and in need of our services, we reach out to you. Your partnership and support are so very important. No contribution is too small or too large. We invite you to join us as we work to continue to bridge the gap in meeting the needs of an increasing number of poverty-level families in Johnson County. The charitable donation that you give today aids in our mission to empower children and families to success.
Donations can be made online via PayPal or can be mailed to:

Downtown Overland Park is excited to announce that a new line of bags will be available at a variety of retailers to lead into the holiday shopping season. These bags have been created through a partnership with Stitching Change, a grassroots project that provides opportunities for social enterprise for refugee women from Bhutan, Nepal and Burma.
The one-of-a-kind products are created from re-purposed and donated materials and will be fashioned into double-sided, reversible shopping bags. Utilizing re-purposed textiles directly supports Downtown Overland Park’s efforts to reduce landfill waste and encourage sustainable practices throughout the district.
