Cass Dems for our July Community Service event, please sign up to help provide and serve a meal for Free Hot Soup Belton/Grandview. The folks with Free Hot Soup serve a full meal every week to unhoused and others in need in our community and never miss a beat regardless of temperature or conditions. The numbers they feed and the Need have definitely grown since the pandemic. We'd like to help this dedicated group by preparing the full meal and serving the meal with them on Wednesday, July 14th.
