Host a Drive

It’s Always a Good Time of Year to Host a Drive

Hosting a drive is a simple, yet impactful way to support Kansas City Hospice. You’ll also have fun at work or with your group – and can even create some friendly competition if you’d like. Be sure to allow ample time for people to collect their items and be sure to publicize the drive widely for maximum participation.

You may even want to leave one drop-off box at a location for a week or so following your drive so people who are on vacation or simply out of town can still donate.

Wondering what items to collect?
