COVID-19 Support – Children’s Mercy Hospital, downtown KC

Music Night – Dedication to “Zcharia Jose” By Rev. Dr. Paul Poovathingal




Children’s Mercy Lunch

Children’s Mercy was a huge part of Teresa’s treatment. The hospital took care of us and gave us much more than we could ask for. To give back to the community that gave us so much, we decided to offer breakfast to the Ronald McDonald House inside Children’s Mercy Hospital. Ronald McDonald House is a place for parents of sick children to stay close to their kids by offering them housing close to the hospital, resources to help them through and most importantly, it comes at no cost to the parents. It is all free! It is a great service to support. We arrived there a little early and set up breakfast. It was an overwhelmingly satisfying experience. Often times you get to meet parents as they come to eat breakfast, hear their stories and understand what they are going through.

As the Thanksgiving season approaches, we at the Zacharia Jose Memorial Foundation wish to express our heartfelt gratitude for your support and remind you of our upcoming event. We are honored to organize a Thanksgiving meal for the residents of Hope Lodge in Kansas City, scheduled for Monday, November 20th, between 6:00 and 7:00 PM.
Hope Lodge, a haven for those undergoing cancer treatments, represents more than just a medical facility; it's a place of hope and comfort. Our foundation, inspired by Zacharia Jose's legacy, recognizes the importance of community support during challenging times. By providing a Thanksgiving meal, we aim to offer warmth, comfort, and a sense of togetherness to those at Hope Lodge.
This meaningful gesture has been made possible by the incredible generosity and involvement of our community. Your contributions, whether through donations, volunteering your time, or simply spreading awareness, have been instrumental in bringing this event to life. It's truly inspiring to witness our community unite in supporting those in need, embodying the values of empathy and solidarity.
We extend our deepest thanks to the volunteers and staff who have dedicated their efforts to ensure this meal is not only nourishing but also served with affection and care. Your commitment is the cornerstone of making this event a memorable and joyous occasion.
As we look forward to this special evening on November 20th, we are reminded of the compassion and strength that thrive within our community. Your continued support motivates us to persist in making a positive impact in the lives of those around us.
Thank you once again for your kindness and for joining us in bringing a moment of joy and community spirit to the residents of Hope Lodge this Thanksgiving.
