HBC HOPE
Essential Services Drive

 
 
 
 
Harvest Baptist Church is essential to our community. Therefore, the Jackson County Stay at Home Order allows our place of worship to provide certain services. Note: We are limiting group size, following social distancing guidelines, and exercising good hygiene practices while we do so.
 
According to the Order, we are allowed to provide food, charitable and social services, and other necessities of life to our congregation and other needy individuals. And our Living Faith Bible Institute, recognized by the state of Missouri as granting degrees, is allowed to facilitate distance learning, perform critical research, or perform essential functions.

Our amended office hours are Monday – Thursday, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Please call before you drive to make sure we are able to receive your donation. 816-224-9113

Looking for Additional Ways to Serve?

Harvesters

Volunteers are crucial to the day to day operation at Harvesters. It would not be possible for us to collect, sort and repack all the food that comes through our warehouses every day without volunteers.
 
Currently, we are not accepting volunteers under the age of 18. Volunteers will be required to sign a waiver before the start of their shift. To practice social distancing, we are reducing our overall number of volunteers and ensuring that no more than 10 volunteers are together in a single area of our warehouses in Kansas City or Topeka at any given time. Hand washing
policies already in place before this outbreak are being reinforced with our volunteers. We have asked anyone to stay home if they are sick
Please visit our website to register for a volunteer shift via our online CERVIS portal.

Local Red Cross

The American Red Cross is asking healthy individuals to donate blood during this critical time. Due to blood drives being cancelled, hospitals are now experiencing critical shortages across the country. Extra precautions are being taken to ensure the safety of staff, volunteers and donors. Now,
more than ever, the American Red Cross needs people to roll-up a sleeve to help save lives.
 

Synergy Services

Securing personal protective gear remains a top priority of ours as we respond to the outbreak of COVID-19. This at home project will impact lives across our community. In just a few steps you can make a mask for our front of the line team.
 
These will serve not only for our staff within shelter, but we would like to provide these masks to our local hospitals to aid in supporting their staff.
 
Please contact Claire Sundermeyer to sign up.

Cass County Council On Aging

At this time, we are in need of volunteer drivers to deliver Meals on Wheels in the Harrisonville area. As our seniors are the most vulnerable to this spreading virus, it is of the most importance to deliver a hot meal to their homes as they are self-isolating

Big Brothers Big Sisters-KC

By donating used clothing and household items, you can help generate funding and furthering our impact in the Kansas City community. Big Brothers Big Sisters partnership with Savers Thrift Stores has been a key factor in allowing BBBS to increase the number of children and families they serve.

Phoenix Family

At Phoenix Family we are taking every precaution to keep our senior residents safe and healthy. We have created a Phone Pal Program to keep our isolated seniors connected with the outside world during this time of social distancing.

The Phone Pal will call the senior once a week and the schedule will be completely flexible to work with you! You will be checking in with them, seeing how they are doing, and then going through a list of getting to know you questions. We will provide the questions to help you get the conversation started! These chats can just be 15- 20 minutes, so no worries
about getting through the long list of questions. You can save them for the next week!

Please sign up here and you will be contacted with more information. Email here with any questions

Urban Neighborhood Initiative

The Urban Neighborhood Initiative is in the process of getting feedback from our neighborhood leaders to see who in their area might need help with picking up groceries or prescription due to age, disability, chronic conditions that make it risky for them to get out or those without transportation to bring groceries home. Volunteers will pick up groceries or medicine.
Contact Dianne Cleaver for more info

Green Works in KC

Volunteer services needed: Review student resumes and provide feedback the students can implement into their master resume document. Resumes (up to three) will be emailed to each volunteer. Requesting a turnaround

Shepherd’s Center of Raytown

During this time of crisis volunteers are needed to help Shepherd’s Center of Raytown continue with their Meals on Wheels and Wheels that Care Program. Hot meals from our MOW’s are provided 5 days a week to those most vulnerable to this disease and our Wheels that Care program offers those same seniors transportation to NECESSARY physician appointments not related to the virus so their health is maintained through this crisis.
