|Happy 120th Birthday KCSL!
Posted February 14, 2013 11:07 am
The Kansas Children’s Service League (KCSL) will commemorate 120 years serving Kansas children and families in 2013. “It’s a tremendous accomplishment to be able to continue to serve Kansas kids after so many years, and we think it is cause to celebrate,” said Dona Booe, President/CEO.
As part of the anniversary celebration, KCSL will feature a special commemorative logo, which will be used on many of KCSL’s marketing materials in 2013. In addition, anniversary parties and other exciting events will happen across the state.
Since 1893, we have worked to protect and promote the well-being of children whether it’s finding a healthy and safe home for a child to live or teaching their parents how to be better mommies and daddies.
Today we have evolved into a nationally recognized child abuse prevention agency and serve as a model for other states across the country. Our services have become more comprehensive and extensive helping Kansas families more than ever before. We are proud of who we were and what we have become. Our mission remains the same 120 years later, but our reach is much greater thanks to those who have supported us over the years.
Join us in celebrating 120 years! Here are a few ways you can be a part of the fun. Come to an Anniversary celebration in your local community. We will keep you informed on when and where via facebook and in our e-newsletter KidsView Online. Join us through social media at www.facebook.com/mykcsl or on Twitter @kcsl and watch for stories from the past 120 years. Consider a gift of $120 to ensure that we are still around 120 years from now! You can give online at www.kcsl.org or on our Facebook page on the “Donate” tab. Thank you in advance for your support in the past and in the future!
