Holiday Heroes Needed to Donate Gifts for Kansas Children and Youth in Foster Care

The holidays are quickly approaching and KVC is seeking Holiday Heroes to donate gifts for more than 3,000 Kansas children and youth in foster care. Children who find themselves in foster care are victims of abuse, neglect or other family challenges. While foster families provide love and care as well as a safe place to stay, sometimes it is difficult to provide a lot of “extras” like presents during the holidays.

Providing gifts is one way individuals, families and businesses can support foster families and show children that they matter. Participants can sign up individually or as a family, church, community organization or business.

How it works:

  1. Click here to fill out our Holiday Hero signup form. You can specify the age, gender and number of children.
  2. Your Holiday Hero packet will arrive in the mail with the child’s name, age and wish list. Shop for as many items on the list as you want and invite your friends to help out.
  3. Place the unwrapped gifts in the bag included in your packet and drop it off at your local KVC office.

We know the holidays are a busy time, so if you don’t have time to shop, please consider helping by making an online donation. If you have questions, please contact Jackie Harwig at (913) 499-8100 or
