KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A Kansas City woman dedicated her life to helping victims of domestic violence. Now two years after her death, her legacy continues to help the people she fought to defend.

Erin Langhofer, 25, died after a teenager fired a gun into a crowd at First Fridays in the Crossroads in August of 2019. Langhofer was a social worker at Kansas City’s Rose Brooks Center.

Her family said that Langhofer loved her “comfy clothes.” So they started a clothing drive called Do Good for Erin. Friends, family, and strangers donated comfy clothes and pajamas to help women and children at Rose Brooks Center.

According to the drive’s website, volunteers collected two truckloads and a trailer full of clothing for adults and children, along with tens of thousands of dollars in cash donations.

You can do your part and help Landhofer’s dream of helping domestic violence survivors by dropping off comfy clothes at Church of the Resurrection in Leawood from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Dec. 11.
