Volunteer Opportunities

What do you enjoy doing?
What community issues are you most concerned about?

I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community and as long as I live, it is  my privilege to do for it whatever I can. — George Bernard Shaw

There are many opportunities for you to volunteer your time and skill.
Here are a few in the Northland to get you started:

Rebuilding Together Kansas City has many volunteer opportunities.
BOOTH VOLUNTEERS NEEDED for KC Remodel + Garden Show, February 9-11, 2018 
Volunteers are needed to man the RT Store booth during the KC Remodel + Garden Show! The RT Store will have a large booth at the show to display and sell our Up-Cycle Challenge projects and share our mission, so we could really use your help hosting the booth. The added benefit of helping in our booth is that you will get free admission to enjoy the show before or after your shift.  We need several individuals to help make sales and chat with our booth guests during the three days of the Show. 
Contact the office at 816.781.8985 or Info@RebuildingTogetherKC.org

Northland Shepherd's Center Meals on Wheels and other volunteer opportunities
Northland Shepherd's Center Meals on Wheels program provides nutritious meals and caring smiles with every delivery. We would not be able to accomplish this mission without volunteers. Currently the MOW program is in need of compassionate hearts to deliver meals. 
What our clients are saying: 
“I don’t know what I would do without Meals-on-Wheels. Many days it is the only face I see. It is so nice to hear their cheerful voice call out my name. After my fall, I didn’t have the ability to cook for myself. I am ever so grateful for the hot meal and fellowship they provide.”

For more information on volunteering with Meals on Wheels, Transportation, Friendly Visitors, Health Advocate, or Respite, please visit the website: www.northlandsc.org or call Teresa Davis, Volunteer Coordinator at 816-452-4536 or email teresa@northlandsc.org.

Hospice is a special end-of-life care for patients and families when illness no longer responds to cure-oriented methods. 
Liberty Hospital Hospice is looking for qualified applicants who will contribute positively to hospice patient care and to their families through emotional support, companionship, empathetic listening, simply “being there” and providing practical assistance as needed in the home.  Volunteers will be enthusiastic and positive, relate well with others, be dependable and punctual, listen well without judging, effectively communicate, desire to make a difference for the patient and caregiver, and have genuine care and concern for others.  

For more information, contact Julie Lippold, Liberty Hospital Hospice Volunteer Coordinator, 816-407-2200 or  email julie.lippold@libertyhospital.org/.
