KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Toilet paper has been in high-demand as consumers navigate stay-at-home orders, which prompted Kansas City Rescue Mission to help.

The agency said it was sitting on a “gold mine” of toilet paper thanks to a donation drive two years ago.

Now, KC Rescue Mission is sharing their extra stock with five area agencies that will give it to families in need.

"At some point, when things get back to normal, we will probably do another toilet paper drive to maybe replenish, but right now our immediate needs at our shelter are taken care of so we want to share with others,” KC Rescue Mission executive director Eric Burger said.

We've created a Facebook group, We're Open Kansas City, where members of the community can post businesses serving their community.
