Don’t Forget – Harvesters Outreach this Saturday!

Hey Everyone! We have scheduled a day to do some community outreach with the Harvester’s. It will only be for 2 hours in the morning and we could really use a good showing of support!

We have signed up to fill back packs with food, and they would like us to get at least 25 people to work that station. This isn’t limited to just us bears, cubs, and other subcategories. Please invite other friends, family members, and even kids to come help out and support our community. I mentioned 25 people as the goal for number of volunteers, but it would be truly great if we can get 50 volunteers. Just think of all of the children and families we could be helping out across the metro with that many volunteers! Please help us show that we are a vital, growing part of our local community by coming to be a part of it!

Our slot is from 10am to noon this Saturday 07/09/2013.

Harvesters is located at 3801 Topping Ave, Kansas City, Missouri 64129.
