Join the Kansas City Atheist Coalition for a cookout at Loose Park and art supply and book drive for Children’s Mercy Hospital. KCAC will provide hot dogs, buns, condiments, lemonade and water. We ask that you please bring an
art supply or children’s book*, your favorite cookout side dish, and fun park game, such as a baseball and mitt, frisbee or badminton. This is a family-friendly event -- children are welcome! Also, BYOB!
*Acceptable Donations for Children’s Mercy Hospital:
Art Supplies - Individual pre-assembled Craft Kits, Notepads, Journals, Pens, Markers (Crayola Washable Markers, Fabric Markers, Colored Sharpies, Paint Pens), Large and/or small size plain white construction paper, Magna-Doodles, Crayons, Colored Pencils, and Stickers.
Books - New Sound books, Look and Find books, I Spy books, chapter books for teenagers. On a personal note, Amanda Brown, KCAC's philanthropy director, has noticed that Children's Mercy Hospital is in particular need of secular holiday books and science themed books for children.

“non-toxic.” Art supplies must be able to be used indoors. No chalk or bubbles please.
