Our Mission

is to provide children with love, help them attain literacy, and give some of the basic necessities of life that will enable them to grow, function, and successfully contribute their talents and abilities to their families and communities.

Red stars show the many countries that contribute to the beautiful diversity at Mark Twain Elementary, the school our efforts are primarily focused on at this current time.

Before our awesome #campxstream comes to a close for the summer, we simply must spotlight our incredible volunteers! One of our miracles this summer came as organizations like @weservekc and Happy Heart reached out to connect volunteers with this great service opportunity! And volunteers have truly made our camp successful! Whether they were reading with the kids, shelving books in the library, playing with the kids in PE, helping in art or STEM rooms, or even folding and sorting clothes in moments of downtime, we simply couldn't have made this great without you!! We're so grateful for every hour, every effort and every smile that has made a difference for the kids at #marktwainelementary!!! Thank you for giving the gift of time and of you! #l3loveliteracylife #kck #kc #servekc #happyheart #serve #l3thanksyou ... See MoreSee Less
