The community continues to remember L.P. -- the young girl locked in a closet -- with birthday cards and remembrances.
News about the horrific story unfolded last summer and the community responded with gifts, cards and financial support for her 11th birthday.
Cards and gifts have already been received for her 12th birthday, which is on Aug. 1st.
LINC is receiving the cards and financial contributions and making sure they get to L.P., who is in foster care. Monetary donations and cards can be sent to L.P. through LINC.
Please make checks payable to: Greater KC LINC, Inc. Mail your donation to:
3100 Broadway, Suite 1100
Kansas City, MO 64111
LINC is the state of Missouri's community partner and an established non-profit agency in Kansas City, Missouri.
The housing complex where L.P. lived is also planning a special birthday celebration similar to the one they held in 2012.
The birthday celebration will be Thursday, Aug. 1st from 5 - 7:30 pm at the T.B. Watkins Housing Complex, 1301 Vine, Kansas City, Mo. 64106.
Organizers plan to have treats, food and games for all and will accept gifts or donations for L.P. which LINC will receive and get to L.P.
