Viral Kindness: A Gift For Women & Children In Crisis

Nov 13, 2020

Amanda Meyers is the executive director of the Wichita Family Crisis Center. Here's the message of Viral Kindness she sent in:

"As you may know, we, in addition to other services, run a domestic violence and human trafficking shelter that is safe and confidential. And our back entrance has been wide open, even though our location is confidential.

So we went through the laborious process of raising money to put in a cantilevered gate that we could open and close remotely. We were at the point of having the electricians come out and bid the contract, and one of the electricians, A&H Electrical, actually offered to do the entire project for free.

"The person that we worked with really understood the danger, especially now, and the severity especially now, of domestic violence and human trafficking in our community, and how unsafe it was for the women and children to have our back entrance open. And so they donated the entire project, which frees up that funding that we have now to go and help more people. 

"In a time of a lot of discord, this was a huge gift to us."
