Kansas City, MO (October 4, 2016) Children International is hosting a Panera Bread Fundraising Night in Kansas City on October 17, International Day for the Eradication of Poverty. The money raised will help CI continue its mission of helping children and teens break the generational cycle of poverty.

International Day for the Eradication of Poverty was designated by the United Nations as an event to promote awareness of the need to eradicate poverty and destitution in all countries. Kansas City-based Children International works in 10 countries around the world providing around 300,000 kids access to safe places with caring teams of local staff and volunteers to provide a clear path out of poverty through programs focused on health, education, empowerment and employment.

To help bring awareness to childhood poverty and support Children International’s work, please visit the Panera Bread location at 1128 W. 103rd Street, Kansas City, MO 64114 between 4 and 8 p.m. on October 17. When a diner places his or her order and shows the flyer – either printed or on a mobile device – Panera will donate a percentage of sales that evening to CI.
