Arbor Masters® came to the aid of the Kansas City Rescue Mission Women’s Shelter
Arbor Masters® came to the aid of the Kansas City Rescue Mission Women’s Shelter in Kansas City, MO. The recently completed shelter was unable to open their doors due to the lack of funds to complete their landscape. In order to obtain their occupancy permit, they needed sod to finish their landscape. Pat Pinkerton, Landscape Division Manager, heard about their dilemma from the Sunday Fox 4 News cast and offered to donate and install the desperately needed sod. The sod was provided by L.C. Briggs Turf Farm.
The project was completed June 13th, allowing the shelter to continue with its plans to open and provide valuable aid and assistance to women in the Kansas City area.
