The Jegna Klub (www.thejegnaklub.org), a Wyandotte County-based not-for-profit, along with several of their community partners provided 150 free hot meals, hygiene kits and socks to homeless and those in need on Friday, Aug. 7.
From their home facility, located inside the One Touch Building Maintenance Office Building, the caravan struck out delivering meals consisting of smoked leg quarters, green beans, macaroni and cheese, dessert snacks with bottled water into the hands of Wyandotte and Jackson county residents.
“We want to be the change we wish to see in our community,” said Jegna Klub Chief Operating Officer Aaron Wyatt.
“This was a collaborative effort with our community partners Comedians Against Bullys, Dignified Digital, Purple Label Barbershop, Surrcutts Barbershop, Helping Hands, Bridge of Hope and Taste Of Flavor,” said Moses Wyatt Jr., Jegna Klub CEO.
Next up for The Jegna Klub will be its “Community Haircut Social” from noon to 6 p.m. Monday, Sept. 28, at its facility, 221 N. 18th St., Kansas City, Kansas. The club looks to provide up to 150 free haircuts for K-12 students attending Wyandotte County schools.
“I would say Friday was a success not because we reached our initiatives initial goal but because of the smiles and genuine thank yous we received,” Moses Wyatt said. “We are looking forward to our next time out, upcoming events and love the feeling of serving and fulfilling a need in the community!”
