WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – HumanKind Ministries is working to “Flush Away Poverty.” The organization is calling it “the boldest fundraiser Wichita has ever seen.”

The nonprofit’s spring fundraiser will see hundreds of brightly colored toilets appear across the city between April 17 and 23. The deliveries of toilets will begin on April 17.

You can send a full-sized toilet for $100 and fund an entire week’s stay in our Emergency Winter Shelter. Or send a planter-sized toilet (complete with succulent) to someone’s home or desk for $50 and fund a two-night stay off the streets.

Volunteers needed

HumanKind is still in need of volunteer groups consisting of two to four people to drive and deliver toilets across the city on (at least) Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Delivery volunteers must have a valid driver’s license and be able to lift 90 pounds between two people. 

Volunteers are also needed to man the phone bank and assist callers with queries about deliveries and pickups.
