COVID-19: How to Help .
We are so grateful for a community that continues to work together to protect and serve those who served us.
As the unemployment rate continues to rise, so do our requests for emergency assistance. The COVID Veterans Response Program for Stabilization (CORPS) is dedicated to assisting Veterans in the Kansas City metro area who have been negatively impacted by the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Our primary goal is to assist veterans who are homeless or at risk of becoming homelessness through a combination of financial assistance and VCP's proven case management program. Every gift helps provide resources that will stabilize a Veteran and ensure a positive upward trajectory during this critical time.
VCP is committed to transporting approximately 1,700 meals each day to Hope Faith, reStart, Hope City, and other agencies providing relief.
We are in need of volunteers with a pick-up truck and a COVID-friendly buddy who can together lift approximately 75-100 pounds. This is a great volunteer opportunity for parents with teenagers at home!
Until May 9th, two pick-up teams will meet at VCP HQ (8900 Troost Ave. Kansas City, MO 64131) at 9:30 am for a quick mission brief before caravanning to Cerner to pick up food. Each team will make their assigned drop(s) and return the empty food boxes to Cerner. The total trip is expected to take approximately 1.5 hours. Volunteer teams can sign up for as many food “runs” as they'd like. Questions? Contact Aspen.
