One of SRB’s long-term (as in over 20 years!!) initiatives is the monthly preparation of a meal at this organization’s site, just east of downtown Kansas City. reStart is a non-denominational organization whose mission is, as it says in their logo, “empowering people, ending homelessness”. We serve somewhere between 75 and 100 people dinner on the 4th Sunday of each month except January. To do this, we need shoppers, cooks, and servers. It is easy to help at a time that fits with each volunteer’s schedule. It is a rewarding and fulfilling experience to help in this capacity – and is a great way to live our UU values. Contact Caron Wells or Becky O’Connor if you are interested. We would love to have you!
Throughout the year, we ask for donations of clothes-especially socks and underwear, personal care items, pots and pans, furniture. Anything to help the residents build a new independent life. The big brown trunk in Conover holds a lot, and reStart staff will pick up as soon as it's full. There is a sign to guide your contributions at the trunk. Thank you.
