LIGHTING UP KANSAS CITY WITH INCLUSION

From the new airport to Kauffman Stadium to the Zoo and many, many other places around Kansas City, Variety KC has made tremendous strides in creating real change in our community. But there is more work to be done. With your support we can truly make Kansas City the most inclusive city in the world, and the model and blueprint for cities everywhere to be more inclusive.

Here are just a few of the things we have been up to lately:

  • Partnering with the Legends field to make the stadium all inclusive including Universal changing tables, Inclusive playground,Sensory Backpacks, Accessible signage
  • Providing VarietyKC Sensory Kits in 300 police cars, At Arrowhead Stadium, Wonderscope Children’s Museum and B&B Theatres Nationwide.
  • Continued planning and development surrounding the new Kansas City International Airport
  • Supported EVERY family that reached out to Variety KC for help!

Our latest project, in partnership with Sporting KC, will result in the first outdoor Inclusive soccer field and inclusive playground to the Northland! This is a massive project, but we know anything is possible because of our community champions. It’s all worth it when we see our Variety KC kids smiling and joining in the fun.

YOU are the key to taking the next step. Come join the revolution and make Kansas City more inclusive!
