HOLIDAY of HOPE BENEFIT

October 2nd, 2020

Join us for an exciting evening of dinner, drinks, entertainment, and silent & live auctions.

We were there when our neighbors needed us during the Covid-19 crisis and now we need your help more than ever. We hope to be able to help over 12,000 of our low-income neighbors this year.

During the Covid-19 crisis we donated well over $100,000.00 worth of merchandise to our neighbors in need and we will continue donating until the crisis is past. Much of this merchandise would have been distributed at the Holiday Shop and will need to be replaced. Many donations are coming in lower.  We need your help more than ever!

FESTIVAL OF TREES

November 19-22, 2020

Our 2020 Festival of Trees event was a unique holiday display of decorated trees and wreaths. All items were donated and then auctioned to raise funds which help our neighbors.

Festival of Trees was presented in conjunction with the Holiday Boutique at the Overland Park Convention Center in November. The Holiday Boutique is a unique shopping experience with vendors displaying all types of artisan merchandise.

Thank you to our tree & wreath donors, volunteers and bidders. With your support, this event greatly helped  our low-income Johnson County neighbors.

The Holiday Shop and What We Give Our Neighbors

The Holiday Shop

The Annual Holiday Shop will be Dec. 4th through Dec. 12th, 2020.  Volunteer sign up will open on Oct. 1st, 2020. 

GROCERIES

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. 

COATS

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. 

TOYS

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. 

PERSONAL CARE

Laundry Detergent. 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. 

A GIFT FOR ALL

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.

HATS, GLOVES AND SCARVES

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. 

CHILDREN/ TEEN CLOTHING

We give a new outfit to our client’s children – newborn through  18. Many of these children/ teenagers will not receive any other new clothing this year. All clothing is new. 

BOOKS

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 HOMES

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.

Testimonial

“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.”
