Whether you're an individual, school, youth organization, or a company, we're always looking for volunteers to help around the Union Cemetery.

From cleaning graves, helping clean up fallen branches, trimming trees, picking up trash, and updating our online database of graves, there are plenty of opportunities to volunteer!

Volunteering at Union Cemetery is very flexible, and at your leisure. If you would like to assist, please text Carter at 816-916-9980.

Grab a friend and some gloves and come on down. If you don’t have any tools or supplies, we have you covered. Let us know when you want to pop down, we’re very flexible and love seeing new faces.
