Holiday Heroes Program

Each year, corporate sponsors and individuals donate in various ways that brighten the holidays for children in need.

KVC’s Holiday Heroes Program is a way for individuals, families and businesses to work together to make the holidays brighter for children in foster care. As a Holiday Hero, you are making a commitment to give them the gifts they have their hearts set on.

KVC’s Holiday Heroes team collects presents, gift cards and monetary donations to make sure each child in foster care has a happy holiday. Imagine living away from home during the holiday season and wondering if you will have gifts to open. Without your giving, children in foster care may not have the holiday season they are hoping for.

To become a Holiday Hero, click the button below or contact Jackie Harwig at or (913) 956-5319. 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. Thank you!
