    Homeless shelter raises money for little girl battling cancer

    KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -A Kansas City 4-year-old is getting help from an unlikely source.

    When a person talks about the men of the City Union Mission, they're talking about men who can't afford to really give anyone anything. But those men aren't letting it stop them from helping a 4-year-old girl named Payton Adams who is battling leukemia.

    The men became aware of the young girl's plight through Johnny Evans, the mission's men's evening shelter manager. He also happens to volunteer as a security guard at Payton's preschool.

    Now the men have been filling water cooler bottles with any spare change they find and turning that money over to Payton's parents to help with medical expenses. They've titled the project Pennies for Payton. They've been doing it since 2011 and Thursday marked the third cooler of change the men have given to the family.

    "Medical bills, transportation to the emergency rooms and it is amazing how these guys who have very little, how the pennies add up dollars and dollars add up to hundreds. So we have sometimes come out of here with $500, $300, whatever they have and it really has been a blessing," said Leilani Adams, Payton's mother.

    The family always writes a note back to the men telling them how much was in the jar and thanking them for their huge sacrifice, especially since many of the men may be estranged or separated from their own families.
