Extreme Landscape Makeover by Heinen Landscape and Irrigation in Kansas City
Heinen Landscape and Irrigation brought their entire team out for a one-day extreme landscape makeover at KVC Health Systems—an Olathe, KS nonprofit and national leader in adoption and child welfare education.
On Wednesday, September 2, 2015, the Heinen landscaping team (approx. 25 individuals) spent the entire day transforming and beautifying the landscape at KVC’s headquarters and its sister venue, the Ball Conference Center. Heinen partnered with local vendors including House of Rocks and KAT Nurseries for the project including various trees, shrubs, plants, flowers and granite pathways. The $20,000 project was at no cost to KVC—and completed in one day.
Ewing Irrigation Supply also came out to feed the Heinen team with a cook-out. After lunch, the crew went inside Ball Conference Center for a presentation from KVC on adoption at their facility. Ball Conference Center serves as in an-house fundraising venue and hosts a variety of events including weddings, business meetings and special events with a portion of each event cost going directly to KVC.
Dave Heinen, owner of Heinen Landscape, said of the special event, “Adoption and finding lifetime homes for children is an important cause. And KVC does a great job uniting kids and families. Our people really wanted to take the time to help a great cause in our community, and KVC was a perfect fit.”
Renny Arsenberg, Executive Vice President at KVC, said of the event, “The project was an incredible partnership between Heinen and its vendors all resulting in a huge win for children and families associated with our Institute.”
