KCM can provide flyers and digital graphics for you to promote this to your congregation. If you are interested in hosting the KCM truck at your church, please contact our Food Pantry Director at FoodPantryDirector@ktcm.org or our Resale Store Manager at Irene.Wells@ktcm.org.

"I have had a wonderful experience at KCM. They have shown me much-needed help. 2 years ago I was making $60.00 a hour. I became sick with MS and had to stop working. Needing help, I was referred to this agency. I have been overwhelmed with the love and concern given to me. Kindness is repaid. These wonderful folks have shown that and more. Merry Christmas, may God bless each and every one of you."

Client in need of food and mortgage assistance.

"KCM helped me and my family 7 years ago. I now own my own business and now I am able to come back and share the love back with them. Whatever situation you are in, never give up. I'm a living example of someone who started at the bottom, going through a difficult time with me and my kids. I had to strive and work hard for it so let this be an example that anything is possible"

Andrew, former client, now a donor.

“Never in my life had I had to struggle, hurt… go without. This past year everyone told me this was all in God’s plan and He would make something good out of the tragedy. I was listening… but not really believing. God has blessed us with so many people in our path to help me get back up and moving forward for my children. Thank you for your help and generosity! I am so thankful for every single one of you!”
