We are excited to announce that we have been awarded a $10,000 grant from the Ronald McDonald House Charites of North Carolina. This grant will fund our touring puppet show “Barnyard News”. The goals of this project are to educate preschool and elementary school aged children in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg community about inclusion and to help them gain an understanding and appreciation of those who have a disability. The cast will be comprised of individuals with special needs and the project will be directed by John Wirz, InReach’s Creative Arts Coordinator.
Thank you to Elena and Tony Ramos, Owners of Golden Pride Restaurants, operating 5 McDonald restaurants throughout our community for endorsing our grant request and for employing individuals who have an intellectual or developmental disability!
We will be posting photos and videos of the characters and puppeteers make sure you follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter!

The Urban Feed Store
After the tremendous support and popularity of our dog bowls everyone kept asking “What’s Next”?
To celebrate the love we have for our furry friends, we’re excited to announce that will be baking small batch dog biscuits. Through the generosity of Carmen Larreynaga owner of Pet Wants Charlotte, (hyperlink see below for address) InReach “bakers” will be baking weekly at The Urban Feed store in South End. Our 100% natural biscuits will fit in nicely with Pet Wants, the exclusive retailer of InReach Pottery handmade dog bowls.
Thank you Carmen for your support and allowing the use of your kitchen and helping provide a unique experience for the individuals we serve!
