*The second Saturday of every month we host a potluck meal and hand up haircuts. For some of us that is no big deal, to others that money can be used for food or gas for the month. Click here for more details.

*How would you like to help us do random deliveries of kindness? Since it is random, we don’t always know when the opportunity will arise. We are compiling a list of people we can call when the opportunities come up. Please add me to the list.

*We need 3-5 people that could help and/or be back up on call for general food pickups.  We have places that would like us to pick up and we get calls from other groups that have food to donate.  We are not currently able to pick up without some additional volunteers that can help.  Please contact Joyce at 913-839-8567 to get on our pick up list. Here is the link to get on the back up list.

*Who likes to color?  We have several sheets that will be turned into place mats at the nursing homes and senior centers.  They can be picked up or colored onsite.  We can use help with the lamination process too.  Once completed, Starfish Project will laminate and set up delivery. 

*PAY IT FORWARD–get the PIF challenge going with all of your family, friends, schools and co-workers. Cards can be picked up M-F, between 9am and 5pm. Let’s cover our community with acts of kindness.

*Do you belong to a group or organization that would like to volunteer as a team?  Here is a link with additional details of how you can sign your team up.

*Do you want to volunteer, but don’t know where to start or how you can help?  Please stop by The Beach and let’s get you plugged in!  We have opportunities come up daily.
