We are excited to announce that we have been awarded a $10,000 grant from the Ronald McDonald House Charites of North Carolina. This grant will fund our touring puppet show “Barnyard News”. The goals of this project are to educate preschool and elementary school aged children in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg community about inclusion and to help them gain an understanding and appreciation of those who have a disability. The cast will be comprised of individuals with special needs and the project will be directed by John Wirz, InReach’s Creative Arts Coordinator.
Thank you to Elena and Tony Ramos, Owners of Golden Pride Restaurants, operating 5 McDonald restaurants throughout our community for endorsing our grant request and for employing individuals who have an intellectual or developmental disability!
We will be posting photos and videos of the characters and puppeteers make sure you follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter!
