VML Partners with Mattie Rhodes this Holiday Season
VML adopted six deserving Mattie Rhodes families this holiday season. These families are often economically challenged, and the gifts donated by VMLers help make a tangible difference.
VML has a long-standing tradition of partnering with Mattie Rhodes during the holiday season and is a favorite community partnership for many VMLers. This year all three Kansas City offices, including the airport, 2020 and Screenland locations, participated. Gifts ranged from various toys, iPods, DVD players and bikes, tools and work clothes, dining sets, bed spreads and kitchen utensils.
Mattie Rhodes bridges cultures and communities through arts and mental health and social services. It provides counseling, domestic violence intervention, substance abuse prevention and treatment, case management, education and support groups, and youth development through a compassionate bilingual environment. Mattie Rhodes is an amazing community resource both on the Westside and Northeast areas in Kansas City, Mo.
