If You Haven’t Been Asked Already, Volunteer!

The City of Excelsior Springs recognizes city volunteers during April with a City Appreciation Day. Pictured above, a group of volunteers gathered in the downtown area to focus on a Fishing River cleanup, sponsored by the Parks and Recreation Department.

Hundreds of community residents gather throughout the year to help the city with projects that provide quality of life outcomes locally, as well as to serve on citizen boards and commissions. Most recently, a plea was shouted out to the community to help provide hot meals to shut-ins receiving Meals on Wheels.

When Mid-America Regional Council (MARC) made a change in programming from delivering a hot meal daily to frozen meals delivered weekly, both for the Senior Center and homebound residents, local residents began work to reinstate the hot meals. The Meals on Wheels Program is coordinated through the Senior Center, located at the Community Center.
