On Wednesday, December 11, Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Kansas City members were treated to an afternoon filled with Christmas spirit! For the 13th year, the Herman Miller and John A. Marshall group have partnered to provide the annual We Care Christmas event. Thirty cities across the country host the We Care event each winter to spread Christmas joy and provide the opportunity for children and youth to create Christmas gifts for their friends and family.
This year’s We Care event brought together fourteen architecture and design firms from across Kansas City. Each firm set up a booth in the gymnasium of the Thornberry Unit and selected a Christmas craft to complete with the kids. Club members got to pick and choose which craft projects they wanted to do and traveled from booth to booth with help from the elves, We Care event volunteers. The crafts ranged from scarves and hot chocolate mixes to ornaments and decorations. The whole afternoon was filled with laughter and smiles.
In addition to the craft booths, kids got their faces painted with various Christmas characters and themes. They even got the chance to talk with Santa, who stopped by to help spread some Christmas joy.
