Blue KC Honors Veterans Day

The Blueprint — November 12, 2019

Yesterday across our organization, we were proud to honor those who have served and those currently serving in our military by partnering with two Kansas City organizations including A Million Thanks and United Way of Greater Kansas City.

Writing Letters With A Million Thanks

Blue KC employees put pen to paper to thank our veterans with A Million Thanks and wrote cards and letters of appreciation. The mission of the organization is to provide support and appreciation of our active and veteran military men and women by sending letters to thank them for their service. The organization also provides higher education and scholarships to their children. To learn more about how you can write your own letter of appreciation, visit

Packing Kits With United Way of Greater Kansas City

Not only did we support those serving abroad, we also honored those veterans close to home in Kansas City. Yesterday, our employees packed kits for homeless veterans to help keep them warm, safe and healthy this winter with United Way of Greater Kansas City. The kits include supplies such as body wash, deodorant, a toothbrush and toothpaste towels and other basic items.
