Ways to Get Involved

This is your chance to do something. This is your opportunity to make a difference. You can cook meals, work in our warehouse or ride the trucks and deliver to the Homeless. A few hours of your time goes a long, long way to our cause. If none of this fits into your busy schedule… well at least spread the ‘good word’ about us. Thanks.

UPLIFT and its Distribution Center is located at:

1516 Prospect, Kansas City, MO 64127-0175   Get Directions →

Deliver Meals

Help deliver meals, clothing and necessities to the homeless. Uplift trucks ‘roll out’ at 6pm on Mondays and Wednesdays;  5pm on Saturdays. The average route takes 4 – 5 hours. Please call in advance to schedule your participation.

This is an excellent service opportunity for elementary/high school students, youth sports teams and other organized groups. If you are planning on bringing a large group please contact us first.
