Community Programs


By only spending a few minutes to select your charity of choice, AmazonSmile provides an automatic way for you to support Community Action every time you shop! Use the link below and sign in with your existing Amazon account, and search for Community Action, Inc. of Topeka, KS. Once you choose your favorite charitable organization, Amazon will donate 0.5% of the purchase price on eligible items to that organization– at no extra cost to you!

Diaper Drive

Community Action supports low-income parents by providing a healthy diapering support system. We distribute 10,000 diapers per month and your donation of diapers and funds to support the program are critical. We encourage businesses and civic groups to consider hosting diaper drives and donating your collected diapers and cash to the program. Individual donations are also welcomed. Learn more by calling us at 785-836-4500.

Matching Gifts

Did you know many companies match the donations of their employees? You can double the impact of your donation by simply contacting  your HR department to see if your employer will match your charitable donation and completing a matching gift form.  With your help, our resources will expand and grow to further help the needs of those struggling in our community.


Every donation, big or small, helps move our mission forward. Your gift will provide resources to struggling Kansas families who face the loss of their homes, their families, and their livelihood. For all monetary donations, use the PayPal QR code above or the link below. For all other donations, including supplies such as diapers, contact us direct at 785-836-4500.
