The City of Harrisonville is proud to announce that the Harrisonville Community Center was recently named the Bright Futures Harrisonville Partner of the Month for the month of October.
The award was presented Tuesday at the Parks and Rec Board meeting by school board member Doug Meyer.
Meyer said the award given to recognize the contribution the community center has made in participating and promoting Bright Futures Harrisonville.
The Community Center recently hosted Bright Futures annual breakfast and is one of the organization's blue barrel locations. The Blue Barrel program is a monthly collection in barrels around town of items needed by local children and families.
As stated on their website, Bright Futures Harrisonville strives to help students achieve success by matching student needs with resources through partnerships between the schools and the community. Those partnership areas include faith-based, social/human services, businesses, and parents and volunteers will be asked to give of their "time, talent, and treasure" to help children.
The program’s initiative goals include building relationships, providing for individual needs and ensuring every child has the tools they need to be successful students who, in turn, become productive and self-sustaining citizens, loving parents, responsible neighbors and outstanding employees.
