Dropping 22 Named Winner at 2024 2nd Quarter Giving Meeting for 100+ People Who Care Barton County


By Dropping 22, Inc.


GREAT BEND, Kan. — Dropping 22 is pleased to announce they are the 2024 2nd quarter recipients of the donations of the 100+ People That Care of Barton County group. Created and named based on the staggering statistic that 22 veterans take their own lives each day, the organization is working to combat the trauma, depression, PTSD and anxiety faced not only by veterans, but the military community and first responders, in hopes of lowering that number as close to zero. They are working to close the mental health service gap for these individuals through counseling, trainings and resources, weekly support groups for couples, yoga training, family gatherings, children’s “night out,” and monthly meals. With the $10,000 in donations from the 100+ People That Care of Barton County Group, Dropping 22 will be able to continue their monthly meals and purchase funds for activities for their popular children’s “night out.”
