Help for Families During the Holidays

Holiday Adoption Program

The holiday season is a joyous time to show your loved ones how much you care for them. However, for some it may be a particularly challenging time of year. The KCH Holiday Adoption Program is designed to make the season brighter for families in our care. Each year, caring community volunteers provide clothing, personal items, toys, food and gifts to these families. Once volunteers sign up, they shop from a wishlist and wrap the presents before delivering them to the KCH volunteer program. KCH volunteers and staff then deliver the gifts to individual patients, couples or families. We aim to sign up all shoppers during October and shopping will start toward the end of November and beginning of December. If you are unable to donate time to shop, you may help by donating funds to assist with this program. 

Holiday Hugs – Stuff-a-Stocking for Kansas City Hospice

What’s better than seeing a smile on a patient’s face? With the help from our community, the KCH Holiday Hugs Program gives some additional joy during the holidays. While our patients living at home or in long-term care settings may not need a lot for the holidays, we  love to make them smile by giving them a stocking filled with treats and helpful items. Filled stockings or filler items can be dropped off at any of our locations by November 30. You may make a financial donation instead of purchasing items for a stocking.
