Thank you, CID Ambassadors!

Downtown Council board members and CID leaders  treated Community Improvement District Ambassadors to “thank you” lunches last week.

The meals were designed to honor the Ambassadors for working on the front lines and keeping Downtown clean and safe during the stay-at-home order.

“Our guys give Downtown residents a bit of normalcy during the pandemic and our residents can use a little bit of normalcy right now,” said Santos Ramirez, CID operations director. “And, the lunches gave us the chance to support Downtown restaurants.”

The CID Ambassadors are part of the city’s “essential” workforce, and have been on the front lines,  since Mayor’s order went into effect on March 24.

The Ambassadors are working to keep the Central Business District and River Market clean, safe and secure – including regular disinfection spray-downs of Ride KC and KC Streetcar stops, and exterior maintenance of 20+ portable restrooms.

In additiion, the CID Ambassadors teamed up with NourishKC this week to launch a five-week food drive – FEEDING KC – that benefits local food pantries. Click here to help. You can learn more about donating non perishable foods to help feed the hungry.

The CID lunches last week were provided by DTC and CID leaders. Special thanks to board chair Julie Pierce, and fellow board members Lynn Carlton, Evie Craig and Richard Wetzel for the meal on Friday.

Thursday’s meal came from Jason’s Deli, 1100 Main, and was enjoyed at Oppenstein Park. Friday’s lunch came from Planet Sub, 1111 Main.
