What we're about

Serve KC makes volunteering simple, social & fun! Members can pick and choose opportunities that fit their busy schedules and interests without the pressure of an ongoing commitment. We host a variety of volunteer opportunities, collaborate with nonprofits all over the city and work together to accomplish the greater good. Join Serve KC to volunteer, help others and make new friends.

Our Mission: Serve KC is dedicated to creating an inclusive space for all people interested in volunteering by creating events that are easy to join, fun to attend and build our community. We utilize our time, talents and treasures to assist Kansas City nonprofits to accomplish their missions.

If you believe in the value of serving your community and are looking for an easy and fun way to get involved, we encourage you to donate your time!

HopeBUILDERS Work Day

Needs a location

Come help build a wheelchair ramp for someone in need! HopeBUILDERS Home Repair helps people with disabilities by making their homes more accessible and by providing home repair assistance. Their most common project is building wheelchair ramps but they also do bathroom accessibility adaptations, painting, floor repairs, yard clean-up, etc.

We will meet at the worksite at 8:30 AM and we will try to wrap up and leave by 4:00 PM. The worksite address is still yet to be determined. I will provide the address once it is scheduled. All volunteers must complete a waiver onsite to volunteer. The event will be outdoors and there are no COVID-19 protocols enforced.

Each of the projects are led by an experienced project manager who plans and designs the projects. This makes it easy for us, we just show up ready to work! All skill levels are welcome. All materials will be provided too. Volunteers are always welcome to bring tools to help with the project such as gloves, drills, goggles, etc. If you do, PLEASE MARK YOUR TOOLS so they don't get lost!

It is suggested that volunteers wear comfortable clothing and closed-toe shoes. Teens 14+ are allowed if accompanied by an adult.

Salad! Salad! Salad! Lunch for Hospice House Families and Staff

About Kansas City Hospice: When staying at home isn’t an option, Kansas City Hospice House provides a peaceful care alternative by providing medical and nursing care for patients facing advanced illnesses, as well as emotional and spiritual support for patients and their families, all in the comfort of a beautiful, homelike environment. It’s a place where many generations come together and where family members are relieved of caregiving duties and can focus on each other, while the staff attend to the patients’ needs.
