Celebrating the End of the Year

We at CRC wanted to shed the spotlight on a special organization who put some extra joy into this holiday season. 
CRC was happy to help coordinate with the KDOT Division of Planning & Development and Division of Aviation to make Christmas little more special for six special seniors this year.  Over one hundred staff members from both KDOT Divisions chose to participate in this special gift give-a-way!
