Concrete Cares


Kansas City, MO – The concrete industry in Kansas City is mighty!  Concrete is found all over the world, as it is the #1 building material.  The industry cares about those in pain; suffering and struggling with disease, cancer and medical ailments.  We recognize how those with challenges need everyone’s compassion, prayer and donations to fund research and medical solutions. 

Our Mission:  To allow our local collation of concrete associations, business and individuals, to identify a local unifying project; then to place decorative concrete to draw attention to that need.  By pulling contractors, concrete suppliers, and concrete companies (everyone in the industry) together we can donate in-kind materials and labor/talent to create the show piece.  As an industry, our goal is to place decorative concrete in all 50 states in 2012 - 2013. 

On Thursday, August 30, starting about 7 am, we will be placing decorative concrete at The Hope Lodge, created by the American Cancer Society (1120 Pennsylvania Avenue, Kansas City, Missouri 64105).  The Hope Lodge is in need of a new patio and outdoor living area for their guests and Concrete Cares has the solution.  Through in-kind industry donations, we are giving them a patio they will never forget.  There will be a ribbon cutting and open house for current and past guests of the Hope Lodge on September 15th.  Please join us as we unveil some beautiful decorative Concrete to support all those who are challenged with cancer in Kansas City.
