• Set-up for KC Hospice Circle of Lights

    Needs a location

    Volunteers are needed to help setup he luminaries around the big fountain in Mill Creek Park on the Plaza for the KC Hospice Circle of Lights ceremony. Some physical activity is required for this event, which includes bending, walking, setting up folding chairs and filling bags with candles and a little sand.

    Dress comfortably and shoes, you may also want to bring sun screen and hats. Hospice will provide water. If you have a portable wagon, please bring it to help move the sand around the area.

    When you arrive look for the check-in table and ask for Selena or Serve KC. Free parking is available in a number of nearby garages and sometimes on the street next to the event.

    Masks are not required as long as this event remains outdoors, but feel free to wear one if you like.

    Circle of Lights is a beloved tradition at Kansas City Hospice & Palliative Care. It began as a way for the many caregivers on our staff to remember those they cared for, while bringing comfort to the families who lost someone dear to them. From there it grew into a community event open to everyone who wished to remember, celebrate the lives of their loved ones, and find hope for the future.

    WEATHER ALERT -- Check here for updates before heading to the Plaza, due to this being outdoors the location may change or event may be postponed. I will also post to this site if it is cancelled. You may call or text me the day of the event, 816-582-7857, Selena.
