AREA + Take Flight KC

By | No Comments

AREA is beyond excited to announce that we have chosen Take Flight KC as our philanthropic partner for 2021 and 2022! Take Flight has a significant impact on our disabled community, offering fun and accessible activities to aid in connection and help make memories.

As you can imagine, right now is a tough time for Take Flight, as well as those adults and children they service. AREA is working with Take Flight to brainstorm creative ways to reach these individuals and find opportunities to bring fun and joyful activities to them safely until they are able to hold events again. Some of Take Flight’s past events include annual Fly Day, Take Flight Takes The Zoo, Take Flight Takes the Stage, as well as other activities.

We look forward to building our relationship with Take Flight KC and helping our disabled community. For more information, please visit their website.

A New Home For The Children’s Place

By | No Comments

After over 30 years of helping KC area children dealing with trauma, The Children’s Place has moved to a new larger home, and AREA is grateful for the opportunity to help them with this transition. They have moved from the corner of 59th & Brookside Boulevard just over a mile to 65th & Rockhill Road.

AREA’s assistance in the real estate transaction was as rewarding of an experience as we have ever had. Ann Thomas and her team tirelessly work to serve a community in need and for years they worked in an outdated facility that was too small. AREA agents, Adam Abrams & Mike Levitan helped the team to find a new, larger building. The main requirement was the need to be located on the bus line and closer to the kids that they serve. Nothing on the market at the time was going to work and fortunately we found something off market that checked all the boxes.

Not only do they now have enough room to serve the kids, but the staff now have the type of facility that makes their job just a bit easier. They also have a new 5-foot welcome teddy bear named Rudy, after a beloved retired teacher of 42 years, Rudy Liggins.

In addition to our business relationship with this wonderful organization, our company has been fortunate to partner with The Children’s place over the last 2 years on a philanthropic level. It has been such a rewarding experience to see first hand the impact being made by TCP and to play just a small part in helping these children in our community.

Congratulations to The Children’s Place and welcome home!
