A Kansas City based company had a message, but had no idea how much it would resonate when they originally shared it.

The words “K.C. Strong” can’t be missed on the side of the Creative Planning building at I-435 and Nall in Overland Park.

The company’s president, Peter Mallouk, thought of putting the sign up as a message of hope in the COVID-19 pandemic.

With recent unrest over the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police and protests across the country, that sign has even more meaning. Mallouk says he sees it staying up for some time.

In a show of support for all the metro has to offer, Creative Planning hired another Kansas City business, “Next Page,” to put up the sign.
