What causes or nonprofits do you feel strongly about or want to volunteer with? (ex: hunger, the environment or Habitat) Do you currently volunteer with any nonprofits?

I care about KC's air and water quality, food insecurity, inadequate housing stock, and economic disparity along geographic and racial lines in Kansas City. I volunteer my time with groups that affect these issues with effective person-to-person action.

What type of volunteer work are you interested in doing? (ex. sorting or organizing, cooking/serving food, building or physical work, ect.) Do you have any special skills?

I am an organizer and an administrator. I also dig in the dirt to grow (and weed) plants.

The Serve KC Leadership Team is made up of volunteer Organizers and Event Hosts. Would you be interested in hosting an occasional event or organizing with a new nonprofit?

Absolutely yes! My nonprofit's name is Clement Waters. Our EIN is[masked] (so you can look us up on Guidestar.org) and we're working on making a difference in one neighborhood: the Gregory Ridge neighborhood in east KC near Swope Park. I also am the organizer of 3 Meetup groups that care about the issues affected by Clement Waters' mission.

What do you hope to get from volunteering with Serve KC?

Connections with like-minded folks, more people inspired that they can act to make a lasting difference in their home city.

How did you find out about Serve KC?

Leslie Scott (and various others, but she's the latest) told me I need to check you out.
