The perfect way to give back to those in need in our community, Empire Candle Co., LLC will be having their 3rd annual donation drive on November 4, 2023.
FIA is supporting this fundraiser and we encourage everyone to please share this event with your employees!
Through strong partnerships with Heartland 180, Giving the Basics, and Michael Bergen’s Hands to Heart, these donations will make their way to families in our area who need them most! Last November, the donation drive helped to plant a seed in the Wyandotte County community and we plan to nurture it and grow this event year after year. There are many families in need this time of year who manage to “fall through the cracks” in the system – thanks to last year’s event, we were able to help over 200 families who were in this category. Out of 104 counties in Kansas, Wyandotte County ranks 104th in overall health, quality of life, health factors, and socio-economic factors. This fundraiser will be a great way for those of us who have been so fortunate to give back to our friends and neighbors.
This event is open to the public and everyone is welcome to swing by and drop-off their items between 10:00am until 2:00pm. You can also volunteer or donate monetarily to these organizations and you can download this flyer to share on social media. Make sure that you specify #EmpireCares when donating or sharing on social media.
Let’s work together to strengthen that critical community connection!
