The Deron Cherry Charitable foundation works with several charities within the city to help resolve the needs of those looking for help
Kansas City's Score 1 for Health is a preventive health program that provides free, in-school health screenings for elementary-aged children in the greatest need, including urban core and low-income families from under-resourced neighborhoods.
Camp Quality serves children with cancer and their families by providing year-round programs, experiences, and companionship, at no cost. Camp Quality promotes hope and inspiration while helping children foster life skills and develop their full potential.
Midwest Animal ResQ (MARQ) was founded in 2009 as a small foster-based rescue group focused on rescuing dogs from inhumane conditions at local large scale breeding facilities. With the help of dedicated supporters and volunteers, MARQ has grown into a multifaceted group in a short period of time. While we are still very passionate about retired breeding dogs, our scope has increased along with our capacity to serve the animals of the greater Kansas City area. Our adoption center in Raytown, MO opened in 2015, and our sanctuary property on 6 acres provides safe housing for animals needing special medical or behavioral help prior to going to their forever homes.
Answering the Call was founded in 2015 to support all First Responders in a time of need. This 501 (c) (3) was established to link the community support to local first responders during a difficult time. Answering the Call is a source of not only financial aid but a community awareness to support first responders and their families.
