Media Mix Mission
Media Mix of Kansas City’s mission is to bring buyers and sellers of media together for education and networking while raising $20,000 annually for our local Operation Breakthrough.
Operation Breakthrough cares each weekday for more than 400 children, ages 6 weeks to 13 years. More than 87% of the enrolled families live below the federal poverty guidelines, most far below them. About 20% of the children are homeless or near homeless, living in battered women’s or homeless shelters or transitional living programs. Often they sleep on the sofas of friends or relatives, sometimes even living in cars, rundown hotels or abandoned buildings. About 10-15% of the children are in foster care or other placements due to abuse, neglect or other family crises. The average income of our families is $12,898.
