In 2020, NorthPoint Development team member Courtney heard 25 families would go without food on Thanksgiving. She was unwilling to let them go without food, so she knew something had to be done.
With the help of the NorthPoint Foundation, Courtney and her fellow team members purchased, packed, and distributed Thanksgiving meals to those 25 families in need.
Since that first year, Courtney has remained in contact with the director of the McKinney-Vento Program through the Kansas City, KS School District, to help more families in need. This year, in 2022, Courtney and her fellow team members provided 50 meals for families in need. The McKinney-Vento Program serves KCKPS students and families by connecting them to community resources. To learn more, please visit https://kckps.org/mckinney-vento-homeless-program/.
