Local News

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — After a fire destroyed an entire section of The Kitchen’s warehouse last month but has a chance of getting a generous donation.

This non-profit lost $150,000 worth of donations when someone set fire to their warehouse in November 2019.

Now, an anonymous donor is hoping to help replenish the warehouse by offering to match the first $50,000 donated to The Kitchen in the month of December.

Meleah Spencer, CEO of The Kitchen, says people have been supportive of them during their time of need.

“So we’ve just had an outpouring of love from the community,” Spencer said. “Really restocking our shelves for food for the clients that we serve and the clothing and clients that we serve as well as furniture for the clients that we serve because we set them up in their apartments because many of them have nothing but the clothes on their back.”
