For these families, gifts and holiday extras just aren’t in the budget. So again this year, our main branch staff donated lots of clothes and toys for a needy family. The bank also donated a gift card so the family can buy food for a holiday meal. Michael Holton from our loan department led the effort through our Harmon-Huwaldt project. For many of these children, the only presents they will open on Christmas are the ones that are donated.
Operation Breakthrough just expanded their reach and will be able to serve 300 more children and their families with their amazing new space across the street from their main building which is connected by a bridge over Troost. It includes 10 special learning labs like robotics, digital media, and the arts and much more. Here’s the story about the expansion from KMBC News.
