From Sandy Vivian: Thanks to UMKC for inviting After the Harvest to their Civic Connections Volunteer Fair today. The rain didn’t deter the many students and others we met and signed up to glean this upcoming season to help feed hungry people in the area. I met Emily Vogel (pictured here) as she signed up to bring her little daughter, Lily Jo, to an upcoming gleaning and pantry delivery (Lily Jo is a giver…she asked for donations to the ASPCA instead of birthday gifts this year!).
Other organizations represented today included Harvesters, Literacy Kansas City, Rose Brooks, Make-A-Wish and many more at the event arranged by the UMKC Department of Student Affairs and Enrollment Management and the Office of Multicultural Student Affairs.
