Sack it for Santa

Teens 12-18 Deserve Something Special for The Holidays, But They Are Often Overlooked.

The teen years are difficult at best, and to be forgotten during the “Santa” season is hard. These young people are facing many challenges in their lives and often wonder if anyone cares. Your gift will assure them they are valued and that they matter.

Please help Santa by filling the sack with special gifts just for teens. Don’t have time to shop? You can still support a child in your community by donating to the Sack it for Santa program via our website,, or by calling our office at (816) 932-9170. After you donate, our elves will shop and fill a bag on your behalf! We will gladly accept any amount but recommend $40 for each bag.

The Love Fund for Children will identify disadvantaged teens around the city, both in Kansas and Missouri. Then we will make sure that your special sack gets distributed to just the right teenager.

Our presenting sponsors of the 2018 Sack it for Santa program are Concorde Career College, Fry Wagner, and FOX4. Please Join us and help create wonderful memories for special young people this holiday season.

Drop off your filled sacks at any participating CVS/Pharmacy Store, Johnny’s Tavern, Great Southern Bank or Mazuma Credit Union by Sunday December 15, 2019 by 6:00pm

Back to School Supply Drive

Getting a student “back to school ready” is a challenge for nearly every family, but it’s even more difficult for many Love Fund families. Facing poverty or the overwhelming expenses of caring for special needs children, school supplies often falls toward the bottom of necessity spending. With your help The Love Fund will provide students in the community with the supplies they need to succeed this school year.

Our goal is to give away school supplies to over 5,000 K-5 students in the Kansas City area. Last year, we were able to provide a backpack and supplies to over 600 kids in the community. We hope to serve every student who applies, but we depend on financial support from businesses, organizations, and people like you.

The Love Fund for Children would like to invite your company to participate in our annual School Supply Drive. The drive will run from July 1, 2019 – August 4, 2019 and supplies will be distributed August 10th during the Back to School Bash at Silverstein Eye Center Arena's in Independence, MO.

Organize a drive of your own! It’s the best way to give back to these students in our community. All you need is the the general information and school supply list to get started! Collection dates and drop off locations are below!

Your support is greatly appreciated and we look forward to working with you to help students in our community start the 2019-2020 year off right. Text LoveFundKC to 243725 to donate or click the button below!
