As we prepare for this week's tradition of Thanksgiving, and the holiday season that follows, it is customary to also think of those in need. But what does need look like in our community? Where are the gaps and what resources are there for people who need some help filling them. And if we feel a calling to help, how do we do that and where do we go?
Matt Sanning, executive director of Lee's Summit Social Services, called Lee's Summit Town Hall hosts Nick Parker and Jason Norbury last month to pitch this conversation. Not as a way to promote his particular not-for-profit, or even as a way to call for donations (although he will always gladly accept), but more as a way to paint a picture of the needs in our community and as well as let people know of the many resources available in Lee's Summit.
Lee's Summit Town Hall is a weekly podcast conversation, produced by Link 2 Lee's Summit, highlighting local issues and people in Lee's Summit, Missouri. Each week, hosts Jason Norbury and Nick Parker discuss pertinent issues and topics concerning local residents and introduce listeners to some of the people who help make Lee's Summit a vibrant and growing community. Catch the show each week on this web site, Stitcher Radio, or subscribe to the podcast at link2leessummit.com or at iTunes or GooglePlay.
