The Center of Wichita is working on a donation campaign

This month The Center is celebrating seven years!! It’s hard to believe that we have been here that long. And to celebrate, we are reaching out to everyone in the community to help support The Center of Wichita, our LGBT center. The Center is a charity organization that operates solely on donations. For the past several years, had it not been for the help of five individuals, we would not have been able to keep our doors open.
    The other day I read something that my third Great Grandmother wrote in the 1850’s: “We can all do a little. We can all become more united. A great many littles in time will amount to a great deal.”
    The Center board of directors is asking people to help keep the Center’s doors open. If a lot of people (100+) would give a little (as little as $5 or $10 per month) we could not only keep the doors open, but we could do even more.
    Because what is $5 or $10 a month? A lunch, a couple of coffees, about three gallons of gas? If each person would donate $10 a month and others would donate $10 a month, it all starts to add up.
    If we had 100+ people on board, we could add more programs for the community. Set it up with PayPal and do a reoccurring donation. $5, $10, $25, whatever. Or do a one-time donation. And visit our website to find out other ways to support The Center.  
    Want to help even more? We are always looking for volunteers. We need people willing to help our youth group (background check required), help keep the building clean, help promoting The Center, help with social media, help with fundraising, and needing folks willing to serve on the board. It gets old and tiresome having the same people and we need new ideas for the Center.
    Our e-mail is thecenter or you can contact our treasurer at And visit our website at for more information about our various programs. l
