There are many ways to open doors for the students of Cristo Rey High School Kansas City. In this short video, students show and tell how your help can makes their dreams come alive and how they are working hard to honor those who support them.
We are excited to once again help equip the graduates of Cristo Rey High School with items they need for their transition to college this fall. Cristo Rey is one of our local ministry partners that seeks to provide high quality, college-preparatory education for low-income families.
100% of Cristo Rey graduates are accepted into college. Many of these students will be the first of their family to attend college. Getting there is only the beginning of the journey for these students, and our Grad Pack Project is a way to help send these students off with one less thing to worry about.
Due to COVID-19, this year’s project will be completely online. Your financial donation takes care of providing supplies for backpacks, linen bags, hygiene kits, scholarships and other needed items.
