RP Cares launches 'Neighbors Helping Neighbors'
New program matches helpers with people requesting assistance
Ray-Pec Cares is looking for helpers.

As an outreach of the Raymore-Peculiar Public School Foundation, Ray-Pec Cares is introducing a new program: Neighbors Helping Neighbors.

If you have a need, we want to help meet it. If you can help, we want to connect you to a person who has a need.

There are links below to two forms: one for requesting assistance and one for the helpers. These forms will help us match helpers to needs. 
Note: When you submit a form requesting help, we do not guarantee that we can say yes. If we are able to meet your need, you will be contacted via the information provided on the form. 

"Helpers" can help with the following: meals, hygiene items, baby items, clothing, school supplies, running errands, and basic items to entertain children, such as games, puzzles, etc.

Thank you for being a neighbor!
