We need your feedback! If you travel by car, foot, or bike on Westport Road, please complete our quick 5 question survey.

This is the follow-up survey for the Midtown Asphalt Art Project. We need to know how you feel about the intersection of Westport Road and Wyandotte post-installation of the murals and traffic calming features.

Redeemer Fellowship's AFFORDABLE CHRISTMAS

The mission of Affordable Christmas is to give families of our partnerships the opportunity to provide Christmas gifts in a way that preserves dignity and promotes empowerment. Every year our community donates thousands of gifts that are available for purchase by families from our partner organizations at 1/10th of the original purchase price. Affordable Christmas will be on December 12, 8 am - 1 pm.

Painless Fundraising:
Support Midtown KC Now When You Shop Online!


While we will always encourage everyone to SHOP SMALL as much as possible, we know many of you shop Amazon sometimes. When you do, we would appreciate it if you chose us as your AmazonSmile charity.
 
We will get .5% of eligible purchases when you shop at https://smile.amazon.com.
(If you use your phone for purchases, it should update your Amazon app automatically,
but that isn't the case with the website.)
