Kids Flea Market is TOMORROW!

Come Find Some Fantastic Bargains Tomorrow!

Learning Tree Kids Flea Market May 31, 2014

6th Annual Learning Tree Kid’s Flea Market!
Corinth Square Shopping Center

Booths will set up along 83rd Street near Commerce Bank for easy access to all the great toys, books and games.

All unsold items will be donated to Operation Breakthrough, a nationally accredited, not-for-profit corporation that began in 1971 as a response to requests from parents in the central city for quality child care for children of the working poor.

The program began with 50 infants, toddlers and preschoolers at 31st and Paseo. In 1976, it expanded to include before- and after-school care. The Center moved to its current location at 31st and Troost in 1981. Since that time, it has added a broad range of social services to meet the needs of the children and their families. In 2006, Operation Breakthrough completed an expansion and renovation project that doubled the size of the facility and increased its licensed capacity from 353 children to over 500.

Operation Breakthrough’s initial funding came from the Model Cities Program and a grant from the Hall Family Foundation. Current funding comes from a federal Head Start grant, the State of Missouri, the city of Kansas City, private donations and various foundations.

Operation Breakthrough relies on the generosity of people like you to continue its work.
