Memorial and Honorarium gifts are a special way to keep your loved one’s memory and legacy alive. Be it family, friends, teachers, or co-workers, these touching gifts provide an opportunity to remember or pay tribute to individuals as well as recognize special occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries, retirements or holidays. Memorial and Honor gifts offer a unique way to express your feelings to others, and directly benefit the individuals served at CDD. The family of those being remembered or the individual being honored will receive a special notification identifying the donor without specifying the gift amount.

Shop for CDD
Have a great car you no longer want or need? Don’t trade it in for next to nothing. Donate it to CDD. It can be worth more to you than the dealer offers in trade in. It’s easy, tax deductible and best of all, it will provide CDD with wheels to help accomplish our mission…by getting people to work, to doctors’ appointments, grocery shopping, and so much more! Call 816-531-0045 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for arrangements. (Donated vehicles will be used by daily drivers and should be in sound operating condition with no major mechanical flaws.)
Donate a Vehicle

Donate by Hosting a Fundraising Event
The contributions of goods or services can go a long way toward supporting the CDD mission. From time to time the individuals we serve have needs beyond their means. Sometimes individuals move-in with nothing but the clothes on their back. Starting a new apartment or ISL home takes a lot of resources. You can help by passing along useful items you no longer need or want. Your donation not only helps a good cause but also promotes recycling.
We are looking for some of the following items: furniture, dishes, cookware, silverware, home décor, kitchen utensils, dish soap, personal hygiene products, paper towels, gift cards, vacations.
There are many rewarding opportunities to volunteer throughout the year as an individual or as a group, volunteers of all ages are welcome.
To volunteer or learn more about any of these opportunities, please call Baylee at 816-531-0045 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
