Children’s Mercy – Home for Little Heroes

This house has curb appeal – and more! It’s the Home for Little Heroes, which was built by Summit Homes and its trade partners, who donated materials, labor, and services. Levi Ryff, who is a Children’s Mercy patient, served as the face of the Home for Little Heroes project. When the house was sold, 100 percent of the proceeds were donated to Children’s Mercy. The check presentation in July was cause for celebration by everyone who was involved in its creation.

The wonderful celebration
