  • Volunteer Value


  • I have volunteered with KC Shepherd's Center for over 10 years, doing Meals on Wheels and Medicare counseling. They are extremely supportive of their volunteers, providing ongoing communication, support, and recognition. The programs they operate to assist older adults are well-run, compassionate, and meet an important community need. The staff and leadership are top-notch with extraordinary dedication. This is a class organization.
