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 and teens involved in the child welfare system. As a Holiday Hero, you are making a commitment to give them the gifts they have their hearts set on.

Our team is collecting presents, gift cards and monetary donations to make sure children who are in foster care, have safely reunited with their family or have been adopted have a happy holiday. Without your giving, these youth 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, you can still help by making an online donation. Thank you!
