Donate an Item to FIRE


Just a generation ago, there wasn’t a seat at most Catholic schools for students diagnosed with disabilities. Imagine the heartbreak for so many families. Fortunately, today’s Catholic school classrooms include students diagnosed with Down syndrome, youngsters on the autism spectrum and a wide range of other special needs. With financial support from the FIRE Foundation, schools located in the Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph are able to welcome and support students with intellectual and developmental disabilities and help them make progress toward their goals.

We are currently seeking donations of items and gift cards for our annual auction FIRE Ball, scheduled for October 23, 2021.
