November SMPS-KC Updates Print

President's Report

The few mornings of frost-covered windshields and evenings spent bagging leaves makes it apparent that fall is passing all too fast. Aside from starting our countdown to too much food and holiday shopping madness, November is always our reminder to give thanks and give back. SMPS Kansas City wants to help you do just that!

Starting now through the end of January, we will be collecting winter wear for KidsTLC. As you realize your children’s hats and gloves from last year no longer fit or you just need an excuse to take home that cute new coat you saw at The Rack, bring your unwanted items to us. You can donate winter wear items for all ages and sizes at any SMPS KC event or contact us to schedule a pick up.

Our giving back won’t stop after the holidays. We added a Community Outreach Chair this year!  Laura Sanford of Terracon will be organizing volunteer opportunities for our chapter. Look for details in 2020 on how you can help us give back to the community. If you have suggestions or would like to help organize these events, contact Laura at [email protected].

Everyone has opinions. We want to hear yours!

Take our 5-minute chapter feedback survey at a chance to win a $50 Amazon gift card! Your feedback is important to us and will help shape the programs and events our chapter offers in 2020.
