Time and again, Northeast residents are proving they care about where they live.

Last year, six Northeast residents received the city of Kansas City’s Good Neighbor Award. This year, that number increased.

Nine Northeast residents, along with 20 other Kansas Citians, earned the Good Neighbor Award for creating a sense of community, being helpful and friendly in their neighborhood, and making Kansas City a better place to live. Another requirement was individuals couldn’t receive pay for their services or demonstrated actions.

Good Neighbors received their award during the Oct. 1 Kansas City United Against Crime event at Swope Park.

Northeast winners included:

Pendleton Heights: Amanda Anspach; Bobbi Baker-Hughes; Dave Daleo; Jill Daleo; Jessica Ray; Brian Srch

•Indian Mound: Bud Jones; Winnie Jones

•Scarritt Renaissance: Maria King
