Happy Halloween at reStart!

The children whose families are living at restart enjoyed a great Halloween “trunk or treating”, and trick-or-treating at City Hall with KCMO City Councilman Jermaine Reed. Thanks to Cargo Largo for donating costumes, to the IRS and Soroptimists for donating candy, and to the Shawnee Mission East SHARE group for hosting the Halloween party.

Please note that we now have new hours for dropping off in-kind donations at reStart. We are only able to accept drop-off donations on Wednesdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sundays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thanks!
