Our Mission

Our Mission

We have a three part mission to: provide warmth and support, during the winter holiday season, to low-income Johnson County families; increase awareness and understanding of poverty in Johnson County; and give neighbors an outlet to help neighbors. Read More

Who We Help

Who We Help

We help our Johnson County neighbors who live below 150% of the poverty level. The neighbors living in poverty are moms, children, the clerk at the store, and others we interact with every day. Learn More

How We Help

How We Help

We provide warmth and support to low-income Johnson County families at the Holiday Shop and through nursing homes. Read More



Funds and in-kind donations are needed in order to help our neighbors. Please consider donating. Donate

We are a grass roots agency that gives generous souls the opportunity to give to others. JCCB provides holiday assistance each year to 10,000-12,000 low-income residents of Johnson County, Kansas. Yes - There is poverty in Johnson County, Kansas.


If poverty were a city, it would be the fifth largest city in Johnson County.

1 In 7

1 in 7 Johnson County residents live below the federal poverty level.

Who is Poor

Children and Youth represent 1/3 of the poor.



JCCB relies on over 150 year-round volunteers and over 3,000 seasonal volunteers. Volunteer

The Holiday Shop and What We Give Our Neighbors

The Holiday Shop

The Holiday Shop. December 1-9, 2017. Set up days to be announced. To volunteer click the word volunteer. 


Every family visiting the Shop receives enough food for the entire family to have fully balanced nutritional meals for three days. Please consider running a food drive to help our neighbors. 


Every client who needs a warm winter coat receives a coat. Imagine not having a winter coat for your child on a cold winter day. 


A toy for all children. We try to obtain educational toys that are manipulative and promote literacy. Children without educational toys are at a disadvantage when starting school. 


Diapers. Toothbrushes. Tooth Paste. Hygiene products. Soap and shampoo. Toilet paper and paper towels. Imagine not being able to stay clean, not having toilet paper and/or not having clean diapers. 


We distribute gifts for children, teenagers and adults. Often it is the only holiday gift a child receives. Many mom’s cry when they find out their child will receive a gift this year.


One of each for every child of each family we help. Many of these items are knitted by volunteers. A true neighbor helping neighbor experience. 


We give a new outfit to our client’s children. Many of these children will not receive any other new clothing this year. All clothing is new. 


We have books for all members of all of our families. Each family gets to select books that interest them. Childrens’ books are important to cognitive development. 


Nursing home residents on medicaid, who are not receiving assistance from their own families, receive items such as lap blankets, sweaters, slipper socks, walker bags and more.


“I want to express my gratitude for what you have done for me through the Christmas Bureau. I have no close family left. That’s why I am so grateful for your Christmas Bureau. Last year you helped me find a light jacket that fit me and I wear it around the house ALL the time. That way I can keep the heat lower. This year I got another jacket that fit, and I am so happy about that. I sincerely appreciate your volunteers that helped me find the foods that I wanted and could eat. Your volunteers were so helpful, cheerful and kind. I know some people don’t recognize that there is poverty in Johnson County. There, however, are people like me. You are SO important to SO many people!! Thank you, one and all, for your kindness and your caring.”
