Firm Participates in ‘Skippy and Skivvies’ Drive

White, Graham, Buckley & Carr L.L.C. participated in the Lawyers Association of Kansas City’s (LAKC) annual “Skippy and Skivvies” drive that benefits Operation Breakthrough, a childcare center for low-income families.

The firm coordinated the collection of numerous donations for the benefit of the drive, which collects children’s underwear and socks, peanut butter, and diapers and wipes.

Operation Breakthrough provides assistance for more than 600 children each weekday, ages 6 weeks to 13 years, with more than 98 percent of the enrolled families living below the federal poverty guidelines. In addition, about 25 percent of the children are homeless or near homeless, and another 25 percent are in foster care.

The nonprofit also provides educational programs, healthcare, parent programs and emergency services to the children and families they serve.
