Bringing Hugs and Buddies to Local Families

The holidays can be a rough time, but it is also a wonderful opportunity to bring warmth and cheer to those who may be in short supply right now. On October 24 we kicked off our annual “Holiday Hugs & Toy Drive Program” that will run through December 2, 2016. The program provides toys and our own Shadow Buddies to hundreds of Kansas City metro families.

What We Do

Area businesses are collecting toys that will be distributed to families, shelters and other non-profits that are as passionate about helping children as we are. Our foundation staff, Board of Directors and amazing volunteers will visit a Kansas City shelter to make dinner, deliver toys and spend time with the children and their families.

What You Can Do To Help

Light up hundreds of kids’ holiday season by volunteering with our team. We collect donated toys from around the Kansas City metro area, sort them for appropriate age and deliver them to recipients when we deliver our Shadow Buddies for the Holidays.

If you are interested in volunteering or hosting a toy barrel call us at (913) 642-4646 or fill out our contact form.
