Contribute Your Treasures

Make a Gift

Turn dollars into resources that feed, clothe and uplift. Your gift of $25, $50, $100 or more can provide food to a hungry family, school supplies for children, or transportation to and from a new job. Looking for unique planned giving options? Do you want to donate appreciated stocks to a worthy cause? Please contact our Chief Development Officer, Cindy Isabel, at 816.491.2011 or at isabelc@cslcares.org for more information on giving opportunities at CSL.


Give a Tribute

Honor someone on a special occasion or make a gift in someone’s memory. Instead of presents, invite friends and family to share blessings with CSL on your special occasion.


Contribute Goods or Services

Hold a food or school supply drive. Drop off gently used clothing. Throw extra canned goods into your shopping cart for CSL. Add a few extra uniforms or rolls of paper to your business’s bulk purchase list. We are grateful to generous individuals, churches, schools and civic groups for in-kind gifts that mean so much to people in need.  To schedule a donation pick up click here.
