People in Kansas City have a tradition of pulling together and helping one another in the time of need. This is another way to do this, by helping those affected by the explosion and fire at JJ's. Matthew 5: 16 says, "Just so, your light must shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your heavenly Father," (The New American Bible).
