RAY-PEC CARES NEIGHBORS HELPING NEIGHBORS PROGRAM
(Ray-Pec Cares is an outreach of the Raymore-Peculiar Public School Foundation)
“When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, "Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.” - Fred Rogers
With all of the uncertainty of this time, we know one thing: there is still help for today, and hope for tomorrow. As we attempt to maximize service and minimize risk, we are looking for the helpers. If you have a need, we want to help meet it. If you can help, we want to connect you to a person that has a need. So...Welcome to Neighbors Helping Neighbors.
There are two forms below: one for requesting assistance and one for the helpers. These forms will help us match helpers to needs.
Note: When you submit a form requesting help, we do not guarantee that we can say yes. If we are able to meet your need, you will be contacted via the information provided on the form.
"Helpers" can help with the following: MEALS, HYGIENE ITEMS, BABY ITEMS, CLOTHING, SCHOOL SUPPLIES, RUNNING ERRANDS, and BASIC ITEMS TO ENTERTAIN KIDS SUCH AS GAMES, PUZZLES, ETC. They are not expected to meet all needs and should not be asked to pay bills. Requests should be reasonable, respectful and adhere to the helper’s boundaries.
THANK YOU FOR BEING A NEIGHBOR!
Big Brothers Big Sisters
The Ray-Pec Public School Foundation and Ray-Pec School District are partnering with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Kansas City!
Big Brothers Big Sisters creates and supports life-changing friendships between children facing adversity in the Kansas City area with caring, adult mentors. Little Brothers and Little Sisters who are matched with a "Big" are proven to receive better grades, have higher self-esteem and be more likely to reach their full potential.
To learn how your student may participate as a Little Brother or Little Sister, visit the Big Brothers Big Sisters website or contact your student’s school counselor. You may also contact Jodie Huston, Foundation Executive Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org
