Behind the Scenes of our Mahomes Jersey Raffle…

Our Snow Day Story

This past winter was a rough one for Kansas City, which means it was even rougher on our seniors—most of whom identify as low-income. We had a record-breaking eleven snow days—that’s eleven days we had to close the Senior Center because it was too dangerous for clients to be out and about. Each closure meant that our seniors had to go without a much-needed hot meal along with a warm place to socialize and stay active. For the Senior Center, it meant continued operational costs with no reimbursement from our primary funder, Mid-America Regional Council. In effect, each snow day closure set our budget back an estimated $4,000.

To help make up the difference—and as a way to give something back to our amazingly supportive community—The Don Bosco Centers raffled off this extremely valuable donation from a long-time Friend of Don Bosco. Hundreds of friends and supporters showed their love for our clients and our favorite football team by purchasing chances to win. Thanks to all your support, we raised over $9,000!
