It also just so happened that this evolution coincided with our KC2040 partnership, which leads to today’s exciting news — we’ve officially merged to form Uncover KC. Uncover KC is the culmination of years of working in the heart of our communities, seeing first hand what individuals want to do and what organizations need.
As the movement grew, we met a ton of amazing people that shared the same spirit as us. Luckily, we we’re blessed enough to have several of those join our cause and thanks to their time, talent and treasures, a dream became a reality.Over the last two months, the organization has had to say good-bye to a pair of those founding pillars and I just want to take a moment to recognize each.
On February 18, the First Christian Youth group spent their day volunteering across Kansas City.
That’s why The Call KC is so important. They are exactly what I’ve been looking for. By making it easy to find opportunities, they enable us to go out and make a difference
Trends come and go, however, the value in knowing where your money goes is constant. Buy a T-shirt today and join us as we use social entrepreneurship to give back to our Kansas City community.
When I originally sat down to write this year-in-review post, I was ready for the victory lap.

This is BIG NEWS for us here at The Call KC. As many of you know, education is a huge part of our work. We believe that when introduced at the right time, service can become a way of life for anyone. However, to make our education programs possible, it’s important that we expand on our Corporate Partner Program.
On Sept. 10, KC Crew will be putting on the 5th annual End of the World Pub Crawl. This year, the event organizers will graciously be donating a portion of the proceeds to The Call Kansas City's upcoming youth and education programs for the 2016-17 school year. But we need volunteers!
I hope summer has treated you all wonderfully. For us here at The Call KC, the last few months have been an wild, hectic ride. But a busy organization is a thriving one, so I'm happy to deliver the following update.
