Children and parents deserve to be able to give and receive gifts during the holidays. Artists, crafters and customers at the Fall Harvest Holiday Art & Craft will be offering their gifts so the women and children healing from domestic abuse can feel the community support and the love of giving.
Hope House is a passion of love for Keith & Wanda Davenport, directors of the Fall Harvest Holiday Art & Craft Show. “There are many families who need help to get out of an abusive relationship.” Hope House provides shelter, legal assistance and therapy to assist with the healing process and to begin a life free from abuse. During the holidays, with the help of the community, Hope House creates two Holiday Stores. This area is a place where the adults and children can shop for and wrap presents for each other, free of charge. All of the brand-new gifts in the Holiday Stores are donated by individuals, schools, companies, organizations, churches, and other local supporters.
The Fall Harvest Holiday Art & Craft Show will be at The Pavilion at John Knox Village in Lee’s Summit on November 2nd & 3rd. When asked about this event director Keith Davenport said, “Our goal is twofold. 1) Provide an outlet for the artists and crafters to sell their one-of-a-kind creations that is friendly, happy, and festive. 2) And to provide community support by helping Hope House break the cycle of domestic violence for families in the Kansas City area.”
Visit the show on Friday, November 2nd from 11am to 7pm and Saturday, November 3rd from 10am to 5pm. Admission is free with food and beverages available. We hope you can join us for this celebration of caring. All items donated will be on the stage at the Pavilion during the show. “It does my heart good to see how much love is shared when you witness how much is being offered.”
The Pavilion at John Knox Village is located at 520 NW Murray Road, Lee’s Summit, MO 64081.
