On Wednesday, November 26th, Voices Of The People, will be handing out winter materials for Kansas City’s poor and homeless.
It is our hope at COPP INC, that if you have new and/or used items you can donate and hand them out on the 26th. In so doing, it would be the same as what we do at a Care Of Poor People Event. Of course, we will provide tax deduction slips for your donations. You can start dropping off donations at the Brush Creek Community Center at 3801 Emanuel Clever Blvd on Monday, November 24th between 10am and 6pm and continue through Wednesday, November 26th. The material will be handed out to at the event on the evening of the 26th. So, if you have clothing or other materials to give to the poor, Voices Of The People, will get it done!

Please Help Us Help Them

To my brothers and sisters at Unity Of Overland Park , And All Others That Has Helped Over The Years.
I realize I haven’t been able to visit you lately, and you may think I’ve fallen off the end of the Earth? I assure you though that is not the case.
I have had many things happen to me over the last few months, both physically and emotionally, and for the first time in about 30 years, I’m not able to do the annual Survival Event.
But I still need your support, both with winter clothing to give away on Wednesday November 26, at the Brush Creek Community Center at 3801 Emanuel Clever 2 Blvd. Care Of Poor People is working with another group (Voices Of The People) to do the same type of event to feed and clothe our Poor and Homeless Brothers and sisters on Wednesday the 26th.
If you have winter type warm clothing, hygiene articles, Coats, Hats, or any warm clothing for Men, Women, or children, they will be accepting donations at the Brush Creek Community Center on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday between 10am and 6pm, also if you would like to volunteer to help feed and give out materials on the 26th you can sign up there.

On a related matter, I’m sure many of you have seen me giving out gloves, and other lifesaving materials all winter long like long john underwear, as I’ve said many times I can only give out what I’m given, A large part of the money we are given we go out and buy these materials to hand out to the poor This year we have had very little in monetary donations come in as a matter of fact were just getting by, so I’m asking those that can help us with a tax deductible contribution to please think about the work we do and help us out, if you would like to send us a tax deductible gift through the mail please send the check to Care Of Poor People 3606 East 12th street, Kansas City MO 64127, or you could make a donation on the COPP INC Web Site Pay Pal account.

Care Of Poor People (COPP INC) Has Lost A Great Supporter

Vera had the type of attitude you do not see in most people, she would get up every morning and go to work, not too long ago she had a car run into her and broke several bones in at her back and other parts, but still she was back in the office working not long after that, and this from a woman that was 87 or so at the time, I personally loved going down to her sons offices , because I could pass her office and say hi, she would always have a smile greeting me and usually a hug. Vera you will be missed by many and I personally feel great full that I got to know you, the world has lost a great inspiration.

Below is some more information about Vera and her funeral Services
,
Vera Isenberg, 89, of KCMO passed away on November 14 after a short illness. She was born June 11, 1925, in Hamburg, Germany, to Erich and Nettie Friedberger. She moved to San Francisco in 1947 where she met Ernest, her husband, friend and partner for over 55 years. He preceded her in death in 2005.

The newlyweds moved to Kansas City in 1949 and in between raising a family of four children, worked at Western Extralite Company until her passing. She is survived by her four children and their spouses, John and Jenny Isenberg, Tom and Ann Isenberg, Walter and Christie Isenberg and Carol and Tom Barnett and by grandchildren Amy, Allison and Adam Isenberg, Kate and David Isenberg, Nicole and Tirunesh Isenberg, and Jami and Brian Gallagher, Amber and Mike Pigg, Samantha Barnett, and great grandchildren Tyler, Dylan and Connor Gallagher, and Lola Pigg, and her nephew, Roger Friedberger.

Vera leaves a wonderful legacy of human accomplishment. Her positive spirit, her compassion for others and the ability to look reality square in the eye serve as an inspiration for all who met her. She took pride in everything she did. She was a great cook and baker. “Oma” cookies will be missed by all who had the delight in having them. She loved to exercise and did Pilates and yoga weekly. She played golf into her early eighties and loved to walk around Loose Park. Her favorite spot was “her” bench in the Rose Garden which she visited as recently as last Sunday. She loved music and regularly attended performances at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts and the Harriman-Jewell concerts with her dear friends, Prudence and Robert True. Her favorites were the three “B’s” – Brahms, Beethoven and Bach. She was adventurous and took great delight in a recent trip to Italy. She attended the Royals Wild Card Game and took some credit in their great victory. Her life philosophy, “Look Forward,” is one that will guide us all.

She will be missed by all who knew her. Funeral services will be at Congregation Beth Torah, 6100 W 127th St, Overland Park, KS at 2pm on Sunday, November 16. We will celebrate Vera’s life at open house on Sunday afternoon from 5-7pm and Monday evening from 6-8pm at her home at 433 Ward Parkway. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial contributions to Kansas City Hospice and Palliative Care, the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts or to the Jewish Federation of Greater Kansas City.

Sometimes We All Need Paryer, And God Knoes COPP INK Does Now

My heart is breaking like never before? I’ve always been able to figure out how to get a building downtown to do my survival events, I mean after three decades of doing them I THOUGHT I HAD ALL THE BASES COVEREAD.

Another FACTOR TO THE STORY OF NOT DOING it is the lack of funding, we are a little 501 that rely basically on funds given to us through the public we do not get government grants nor would I take them if they were offered, Once they get involved then its like you sell your soul,and they own you.

Another problem is COPP has been like a big family everybody figured out what their job was at an event and did it. So you might say we had the best leaders in the community, but people started retiring and moving out of town not to mention the ones that has dyed on us that made copp something to be proud of.

Just in the last month we have had three members dye, including my daughter, Just last night Vera Isenberg the mother of one of my brothers John Isenberg passed I OFTEN CALLED HER MY MOTHER FROM ANOTHER BROTHER. One of the finest lady’s you would ever want to meet, I’ll miss her coming out of her office giving me a hug whenever she saw me, and she always had a smile on her face, We might loose another lady of the copp family Tuesday, She is George Arnolds wife Diane Arnold one of our kitchen chefs for years

Then theirs that other problem my health, bad is not the word for it, but I promise everyone reading this I will continual to fight for my brothers and sisters on the streets and their rights until their isn’t any life in this body, and also make sure they get what they need to survive.
