KC Wolf, Trailridge Elementary and Cosentino’s Price Chopper Team Up for a Toilet Paper Drive to Benefit Kansas City Rescue Mission

In a single year, Kansas City Rescue Mission Men’s Center uses around 10,000 rolls of toilet paper—an expense of $6,000. The Mission is holding its “TP Power Competition and Rally” to wipe this need and its costs off the budget for good!

Toilet paper donations will be used at KCRM’s Men’s Center and Women’s Center, where homeless men and women find hope and healing from addiction, mental health issues and other barriers to success. The donations will also be distributed to families living on the edge of poverty and to smaller agencies throughout the metro area who also meet the needs of the poor and homeless.

KC Wolf, Cosentino’s Price Chopper in Raintree, and Trailridge Elementary in Lee’s Summit have teamed up to help this cause!
