A Turning Point

Image_202104190732

Come be a part of our behind the scenes teams! We're looking for folks who are comfortable driving a box truck. No special license required. We work in teams of two, one driver, one passenger that can help load and unload the truck. This opportunity is for our Monday and Thursday Harvester' s run. We usually leave at 8am and we're done by 10:30am. The truck is transported to Harvesters from A Turning Point, loaded, and then unloaded at A Turning Point. Our foods from Harvesters help feed over 200 families a week and it takes so many of our volunteers to make this happen for them. You're not just driving a truck, making new friends and serving your community, you're also becoming part of the family we call our heartbeat, our ATP volunteers.

About A Turning Point

Location:

5105 NW WAUKOMIS DR, KANSAS CITY, MO 64151, US

Mission Statement

To support families by providing basic needs & education equipping them for self-sufficiency.

Description

A Turning Point is dedicated to breaking down barriers. We serve the entire metro area without limitations based on geographical area, socioeconomic factors, or any other characteristics. No matter who comes to our door presenting with a need, we will serve them. We have many opportunities for folks to join with us in service to others who need it. Our highlighted programs include the Food Pantry, the Wardrobe or clothing closet, the Academy built for adults to earn their high school diploma, and our Guesthouse which opened in February of 2021 to serve those in need of a shower, a hot meal, internet access and some resources. The Meeting to aid those struggling with any situation and needing social supports and our community meals have been put on pause until we can dine together responsibly. Our volunteers are the heart beat of A Turning Point. Beyond the programs listed, we like to help our volunteers serve in a way that feels meaningful to them. Like to work on lawns? Sort clothes? Help when clients are present? Any or all of the above and more? We're open to ideas and new ways of service, too! Our volunteers are the light that keeps us going, doing what we do and we'd love for you to be a part of that!
