Community Service

The Kansas City Women’s Chorus seeks to promote harmony in our diverse community, and we do so by providing service to a variety of organizations.

Groups recently highlighted during our concerts have included:

Gilda’s Club Kansas City

An affiliate of the National Cancer Support community that provides social, emotional, and educational support for people impacted by cancer. All of the services and program are free of charge to those diagnosed and their families.

TNT/Leukemia & Lymphoma Society

The largest endurance sports training program in the world. In exchange for training, the athletes raise money towards cures for blood cancers like leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma.

LikeMe Lighthouse

Provides a safe and welcoming space where LGBT individuals and their families, friends, and straight allies can come for education, resources and to build a cohesive LGBT community in the Midwest.

Other service projects by the KCWC included:

Amethyst Place Bra Collection – chorus members donated over 130 new and gently used bras during our spring season ’15. These were given to Amethyst Place, an organization helping women re-enter the workforce (and the community in general) after rehab and/or imprisonment.

Harvesters – the chorus collected nearly 1,000 cans for Harvesters that were donated during the holiday season of 2014.
