As a part of P1 Group’s annual holiday charitable tradition, associates recently helped out with some great causes. Here’s a brief recap:
Kauffman Center Children’s Wall
P1 Group, Inc. extended a rare opportunity to some of the children in the greater Kansas City area. Through donations to the Kauffman Center of Performing Arts, 10 patients of Children’s Mercy Hospital and 48 members of the Youth Volunteer Corps of Kansas City were able to put their hands on the Children’s Wall.
When finished, the Kauffman Center Children’s Wall will consist of approximately 1,000 children’s handprints with the name and age of each child. The handprints are artistically arranged along the escalator and stairwell in the main thoroughfare connecting the parking garage to the ticketing lobby. Above the handprints it reads, “In celebration of tomorrow’s audience.”
The Children’s Wall is a funding opportunity for corporations and members of the community to support the performances and educational opportunities at the Kauffman Center.
P1 Group also extended this opportunity to the family members of its associates.
Toys for Tots
Toys for Tots is a program that donates toys to children whose parents cannot afford to buy them gifts for Christmas.
P1 Group participated in its annual collection of toys for children in the Kansas area. P1 Group and its associates had another successful year of donations.
Artists Helping the Homeless
P1 Group has a long tradition of community involvement and takes pride in supporting local citizens. This year, for the first time, P1 Group partnered with Artists Helping the Homeless.
Artists Helping the Homeless is a local non-profit charity organization that strives to reduce the need and cost of homeless care in the Kansas City area. The program started as a Sunday night meal program and evolved into a multi-faced charity that transports, shelters and counsels the homeless.
P1 Group collected items in the Lawrence and Lenexa offices. To ensure that P1 Group met the specific needs of Artists Helping the Homeless, Christmas trees were placed in each office with ornaments listing the items in need. Associates donated items ranging from clothing to hygiene products to microwave ovens.
