Kansas City's Giving History Moves To KC Public Library December 20
Dec 20, 2018
On Thurs, Dec 20, the United Way will donate 100 years of Kansas City charitable history to the Kansas City Public Library.
Kansas City is one of the nation’s most generous cities, ranked 9th in the latest Charity Navigator survey. The Library will take possession of United Way’s charitable archives—photos, letters, videos, buttons, flags and even original music—that showcases Kansas City’s spirit of giving through the United Way. As part of the 100th anniversary of the United Way of Greater Kansas City, the United Way is donating its archives to the Kansas City Public Library. The Library will receive thousands of documents, photos, videos, advertisements and other materials. The Library’s Missouri Valley Special Collections unit will make these available for use by researchers and the public in the future. The Library plans to display a portion of the collection early next year.
