Local business closes annual charitable campaign benefitting multiple area charities

Door Systems of Lee’s Summit recently completed its Have a Heart campaign which allows them to donate to four local charities.

The month-long promotion set aside 10 percent of every sale/service to a customer’s choice of four non-profit organizations. The choices provided Door Systems’ clientele a voice within the heartfelt financial support Door Systems is providing to the charitable groups.

KC Pet Project, a no-kill animal shelter, provides care to thousands of lost, injured and sick cats and dogs each year. They aid homeless animals with proper veterinary care, food and training so they may be rehomed to loving families. Saved from cruelty and neglect, these pets bring endless joy to their adopted families.

Several years ago, KC Pet Project began building what will be the largest animal lifesaving facility in the Midwest. The journey has been made possible by philanthropic efforts, widespread cooperation and countless volunteer hours. Through popular vote, Door Systems is honored to support the positive difference this organization makes through animal welfare.

“The 10,000 homeless and often injured pets (and the families who get to love them) that we serve at KC Pet Project each year are so thankful for this community support!,” said Marie Dispenza, J.D., Chief Development Officer, KC Pet Project.

Hillcrest Transitional Housing addresses homelessness by focusing on the total life situation of the individuals and families they serve. Providing transitional housing, life-skills education and instilling employment requirements, this organization successfully promotes self-sufficiency within a determined timeframe.

The face of homelessness lies within the children, unfortunate families and individuals in our community and city at large. With the average age of a homeless person in Missouri being a child of 7 years, Door Systems is humbled to be able to donate to a community issue that strikes deep in the heart and the household.

Lee’s Summit Social Services provides basic needs and emergency assistance to the elderly, disabled and low-income individuals and families.

Door Systems proudly supports their mission, which sets realistic goals and puts local residents on a path of promise.
