Thanks to a Kansas City-based employee of Wolf Construction, Youthfront was the first Kansas City-area organization to be awarded a grant from the Iowa-based company.

Each year, Wolf’s employees contribute to a fund that the company matches, and employees have the opportunity to suggest and vote on what charity will receive the funds. This year, Jerry Olender, superintendent of framing for the Kansas/Missouri office of Wolf, championed Youthfront.

“My kids loved it,” Olender said of Youthfront. Both of his children were involved in Youthfront camps.

Wolf Construction presented a $2,000 check to Youthfront this November. Olender said the company supports a lot of philanthropic causes in Iowa, but this was the first Kansas City-based grant made through the Wolf Cares employee giving program.
