  • Do Good Co. nonprofit lifestyle store benefits KidsTLC and KC Pet Project

    June 12, 2017
    Do Good Co., a nonprofit lifestyle store that offers curated home furnishings and apparel, opened to the public on Saturday, June 10th.  This storefront is a dream realized by members of the community who wanted to open a retail store to support the missions of KidsTLC and KC Pet Project. Do Good Co. is committed to supporting our non-profit community through curated goods, workshops, events and volunteer opportunities. The storefront will be managed by Krystal Pina-McGill and Adam McGill.
    Do Good Co hours of operation will be Wednesday-Saturday from 11:00am-7:00pm and Sunday from Noon-5:00pm. For more on Do Good Co, check out their website at https://www.dogoodkc.org/.
    “Do Good Co. is an innovative, one-of-a-kind new retail concept connecting people to the missions of KC Pet Project and KidsTLC”, said Teresa Johnson, CEO/Executive Director & Chief Lifesaving Officer of KC Pet Project. “Through donations and purchases at this amazing store, you will make a direct impact in the lives of thousands of homeless pets and children in need across our community. KC Pet Project is excited and honored to be a part of this new, lifesaving endeavor.”
    “KidsTLC loves community partners!”, said Heidi Wooten, Chief Development Officer for KidsTLC. “This one is so closely aligned with our mission that we knew we had to help make Do Good Co. and Janet Curran’s dreams come to life. Who doesn’t love children and pets? Then, you add children and pets who’ve been abused and neglected to the mix and you have an extremely compelling story. The healing pets have offered to our kids through equine and pet therapy has been extremely successful. Our children unfortunately share a common bond with KC Pet Project’s four legged residents. Together, through the Do Good Co., we can bring community support to our most vulnerable and defenseless treasures!”
