Celebrating our U.S. Veterans this year has made Thanksgiving extra special for the Parson staff and our partners!

Our first annual Project MRE “Serving Those Who Serve Our Country” veterans dinner was a huge success. About 160 veterans and their families were served a delicious home-cooked meal from Peachtree Restaurant at Gregg / Klice Community Center on Saturday, Nov. 8. Additionally, more than 80 meals were delivered to homebound veterans and their families.

The Parson staff would like to thank our partners, including ┬áKC Parks & Recreation; Spencer D. Duncan “Make It Count” Foundation; Helix Architecture + Design; JE Dunn Construction Co.; KC Streetcar Constructors; BNIM; Uber; veteran service agencies; businesses who donated prizes; and our many wonderful volunteers. We couldn’t have done it without you! Most of all, we thank our U.S. Veterans. It has been an honor to serve you!
