Shawnee Community Services is closed today. I feel that this is the most prudent decision to protect our staff & volunteers due to the road, parking lot and sidewalk conditions. All community service help and volunteers MUST call 913-568-3902 and speak with Sylvia. Thank you for your patience. Be safe and warm.
It appears road conditions will be icy and dangerous until after 9 am. We want to keep our volunteers safe. I expect that Shawnee Community Services will not open before 10am. All community service persons should call 9135683902 to check in regarding whether SCS is open Everyone please be careful!
It appears we are going to have several rounds of winter weather in the next two weeks. We plan to be open unless conditions would endanger our volunteers. Please CALL 913-268-7746 to check our status when conditions are icy. I will continue to post here also. If you are scheduled for community service you MUST contact Sylvia Terry by calling 913-268-7746, no exceptions.
The sidewalks are clear however, the parking lot is not. Today, Monday, January 14th, please be aware that our parking lot will be challenging. Be careful. We are open and will make available whatever perishable food products we are able to gather. We are seeking someone to help with the parking lot in future. If you have a recommendation, please call Sylvia at 913-268-7746.
