Shelter campaigns are a huge part of what Mission Driven is all about. Last week the Humane Society of Kansas City reached out with a need. Their washer and dryer quit on them, and as you can imagine, the laundry has piled up.
Thanks to amazing supporters, they have typically been gifted used residential washer and dryer units. Although this is a great blessing, with 20+ loads a day, they don't last long. A residential washer and dryer will last anywhere between 4-6 months.

With the need to think long-term and with never having the money in their budget, the Human Society decided to launch a GoFundMe to raise funds needed for a commercial-grade washer and dryer.
The campaign launched Friday, and between the announcement on the Facebook pages of Mission Driven and the Humane Society, they exceeded their goal in less than 4 hours!
While the fundraiser was happening, Scott received a phone call from his friend Lauren McCarthy Scimeca with the McCarthy Auto Group. She recognized how vital this equipment was for the Humane Society and generously wanted to match the $3000 already raised.
The McCarthy Family Foundation wanted to make sure that a washer and dryer were in the vet clinic and the animal shelter. The call caught Scott by surprise, but their generosity didn't.
The McCarthy Family has supported Mission Driven's animal rescue work for many years, and Scott is honored to call them friends.
And the surprises didn't stop there!
While Scott was picking up McCarthy's check, their CFO Jeff Anthony pulled him aside and gave him a personal donation for $2000! He wanted to make sure all of this brand new equipment had the best warranty money can buy. This warranty will protect both sets for 10+ years!
Thank you to everyone who is constantly sharing and supporting the work of Mission Driven. We are fortunate to have some of the most compassionate and generous people on our side.
