Science City at Union Station is teaming up with Disney on Ice: Treasure Trove to sponsor a food drive that will run from March 14th to March 17th at Union Station at the Science City Entrance. This food drive is a result of the empty shelves many of the poor children experience during this time of year where there are no large food drives going on and they have gone through the Christmas supplies.
The food donated will go to Operation Breakthrough – www.operationbreakthrough.org – which is a Kansas City charity group dedicated to helping underprivileged children by providing them food, shelter and educational outlets that would not be available to them without donations. For this food drive, the first 100 families visiting Science City at Union Station who bring a donation of food for Operation Breakthrough will receive a FREE ticket to a select performance of Disney on Ice: Treasure Trove when it plays at The Sprint Center March 21st – 25th. Requested food items include jelly, cereal, canned pasta such as ravioli or spaghetti, complete boxed dinners, canned fruit, granola bars, stuffing and mashed potato mix. Please come by and donate and if you are one of the lucky first 100 families you will be rewarded with a free ticket to Disney on Ice!
More on Operation Breakthrough: Every day Kansas City's Operation Breakthrough serves 500 children living in poverty in our community. Many of these children live in homes where there is little or no food. The Operation Breakthrough Food Pantry helps to ensure that these children will have something to eat when they go home at night. The mission of Operation Breakthrough is to help children who are living in poverty develop to their fullest potential by providing them a safe, loving and educational environment. Operation Breakthrough also strives to support and empower the children's families through advocacy, referral services and emergency aid.
