Serve KC COVID-19 Response

Dear Volunteers,

As you are likely aware, the City of Kansas City along with several KC Metro County authorities have issued a minimum 30 day “Stay at Home” order that went into effect March 24th.  Our civic duty at this time is to obey this order to help contain the spread of the Coronavirus and COVID-19 in our communities.  To support this order the Serve KC Steering Committee has decided to cancel ALL Serve KC Meetup events currently scheduled until the Stay at Home order is lifted.  The health and safety of our volunteers and our community is our top priority.  We will continue to monitor and assess the situation and will resume Serve KC activities once our local authorities and the nonprofits we serve allow us to do so.

Most importantly, the Serve KC Steering Committee is urging all volunteers to follow the common sense advice offered by health professionals and to take the measures you feel necessary to stay safe.
