Due to the potential for severe weather impacting the Kansas City area during MLK Weekend, we’ve made the decision to postpone our planned volunteer opportunities to Presidents’ Day Weekend. We invite you to join us for a day of service on either February 17 or 19. Choose from a variety of shifts, and consider bringing friends and family to experience the impact of God’s work alongside welcoming community agencies. Let’s come together on Presidents’ Day Weekend to make a meaningful impact in our community. Registration will be open soon.
