One of Kansas City’s biggest community outreach events of the year, Kansas City United Against Crime, took place on October 5, at six different locations throughout Kansas City. Precious Blood Resource Services (PBRS) participated at the Eagle Heights Baptist Church event in North Kansas City. It was hosted by the Shoal Creek Patrol Division of the Kansas City Police Department.
The event provided food, activities for children, police displays, and representatives of community resource organizations. Those in attendance included medical, mental health, financial, crime prevention and other vendors who help the community. Precious Blood Resource Services participated by helping attendees connect with services like rent assistance and medical exams. PBRS volunteers not only gave time with those with immediate need but also gave them assurance of follow-up calls after the event.
