There are two primary annual chapter projects. First is the annual award of 3 scholarships to Kansas University ROTC students. Last year the three cadets received a scholarship for $2,000 dollars each. The second project, the “Avenue of Flags” requires the displaying of over 60 United States flags along Metcalf Avenue in Overland Park on six federal holidays. This project is in conjunction with the local Lion’s Club. Additional community engagements include assisting charitable organizations, e.g. Garmin Marathon and Alzheimer’s Walk.
In the past year the Sunflower Chapter and the Sunflower Foundation contributed over $18,000 to several Kansas organizations: Johnson County Community College’s Veterans program, Kansas University Veterans Center, Missouri Western State University’s Cadet Alumni Fund, Fisher House, and Christmas donations to local charities.
Just in the past 2 years the chapter has begun supporting the Veterans Community Project (VCP) "Tiny House program" located in Kansas City, Missouri. The chapter intented to begin continuous support to this vital veterans program and support the director and his staff.
