KCK RBI: Freightquote employees give back.
October 3, 2014
Kansas City Kansas Reviving Baseball in Inner Cities (KCK RBI) is raising funds for a stadium renovation. This program and its goals have found their way into Freightquote's heart and our employees showed just how much by raising nearly $20,000 in one week.
The funds were raised by raffle ticket sales and a silent auction featuring items such as Royals playoff tickets and coveted parking spots at our Kansas City headquarters. Freightquote matched the amount raised by its employees for a total contribution of nearly $40,000 to KCK RBI's field renovation efforts.
KCK RBI is a program that is aimed at improving the lives of Kansas City, KS youth through baseball and softball. The program includes more than 900 children who learn physical fitness, teamwork, leadership, and life skills for on and off the field, with the greatest emphasis on education. Founded in 2010, KCK RBI has built an amazing program, and Freightquote employees want to help them build a great stadium where kids can play 8 out of 12 months of the year. The facility will also include study halls and equipment to aid the children's education that can be used all year round.
