Kansas Unit

Building a home in 45 minutes with 45 volunteers for Eureka.

Kansas Unit Update: The unit is continuing repairs on homes damaged by tornado in Eureka, Kansas. A parking lot build of a new home began in First Mennonite Church in Newton and was placed permanently on new foundation in Eureka. This build continues with leadership from Oklahoma and will include training for the MDS international long term project volunteers. Kansas volunteers are available as needed.

Much of the Ashland wildfire response project has been completed although there are still requests for assistance. During the recent response there were 150 volunteers working more than 2,500 hours and removing approximately 60 miles of burnt fence on 28 different job sites. Volunteers were local to Kansas and some came from as far away as PA to lend a helping hand to the ranchers. Several local businesses provided equipment at no or discounted rental costs.

Join the Kansas Unit as they continue to respond to the tornado and wildfires.
