“Thank you so much for your ongoing support of programs at Mattie Rhodes. The supplies that your funds covered were used by many of the children, who participated in the children’s area at the Chalk and Walk Festival. We would not have been able to participate this year without funding for supplies. We truly appreciate your assistance!”

Jenny Mendez, Cultural Arts Director, Mattie Rhodes Center,

“Parisole Arts was proud to provide free demonstrations of its KidsCRAFT education program by utilizing supplies provided by KC Chalk and Walk Festival. We were able to offer two craft projects for all children ages 5-18, who attended the Festival. Each participant decorated a greeting card for a child at either Children’s Mercy Hospital or Ronald McDonald House. Without the contribution of supplies, Parisole Arts would not have been able to offer such diverse and creative opportunities for the children to give back to the community.”

Renae Silvey, Executive Director, Parisole Arts,
