Hear Our Tradition of Reaching Out

Contact: (816) 252-8649

We have a long tradition of reaching out to the poor here at St. Mary Parish, offering assistance with food, clothing, and medicine purchases. The Outreach Center is staffed by volunteers who help make appointments, and stock and distribute the items. The Center is open to the public who need assistance on Wednesday and Thursday of each week, from 9 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. We prefer to take clients by appointment.

We accept donations of food and clothing on Tuesday-Thursday during regular office hours. Donations of furniture are also accepted, but please call to make arrangements for a furniture drop off.

Volunteers are always needed in the Outreach Center. If you would like to help, please call (816) 252-8649 to get started!
