Olsson Associates Gives to Drumm

As part of an ongoing commitment to the community, Olsson Associates has joined forces with Drumm Farm Center for Children to make a difference in the lives of Kansas City area foster children.

Drumm Farm Center for Children is unique in many ways. Below are just a few of the highlights:
  • The children on campus participate in a gardening program and care for animals such as chickens, goats, and a donkey named Dude. They also operate a seasonal farmer’s market that is open to the public. Not only is this a great connection to the environment, it also teaches the children valuable life skills.
  • Drumm offers counseling services where staff therapists work to provide a full continuum of care.
  • For young adults over the age of 18 that have aged out of the system and have no place to go, Drumm offers a program of on-campus housing and a network of support to these young adults through this transition.
How Olsson Employees Plan to Get Involved
  • Volunteer for events or on campus
  • Sponsor events, such as Drumm’s annual golf tournament and an Olsson signature event to be announced in 2014
  • Donate supplies, holiday gifts, and necessity items, such as bedding and school supplies
  • Plan job shadowing days for the children to explore different careers
  • Participate in Drumm Farm work days to help build, clean, paint, or dig as the needs arise
