HOT SPOTS THIS WEEKEND

Prescription Drug Take-Back Saturday
The Kansas City, Missouri Police Department is taking part in a prescription drug take-back (open to all) on April 28th. Bring your unused prescription drugs to CVS at 11124 Holmes in KCMO between the hours of 10am-2pm to have your old prescription drugs disposed of in a way that is healthiest for the environment.

Pets Helping People Returns!
On Saturday, April 28th, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.(pet owners start to line up as early as 6:30 a.m.), the City of Grandview is hosting the Tenth Annual Pets Helping People, at Conn West Elementary, 1100 High Grove Rd., in Grandview, MO. This event is intended to provide rabies vaccination for cats and dogs at minimum cost to help a local charitable organization, the Grandview Assistance Program. The event will also provide spay and neuter vouchers and will sell ID Microchips at a reasonable cost ($20). The microchip is a tiny computer chip, which has an identification number programmed into it. Once an animal is injected with the chip, he can be identified throughout his life by this one-of-a-kind number. The price for vaccination is $7 per pet and 3 cans of non-perishable food items to benefit the Grandview Assistance Program (GAP). GAP is an emergency assistance program for those people living in Grandview and in the Grandview school district. It is intended to provide short-term assistance to low income families who need help during a crisis, such as food pantry and school supplies, rental and utility assistance. All the net proceeds will help support GAP and that is why organizers named the event “PETS HELPING PEOPLE.” Grandview residency is NOT required to participate in the event.
