Assistance Requests

The Love Fund works through certified youth advocates to ascertain and validate the need of each child. The Love Fund then reviews each request individually and allocates vouchers for goods and services to providers.

A few of the things the Love Fund provides include:

- Clothing and Shoes

- School supplies

- Therapeutic Items

- Beds, blankets and pillows

- Specialty medical equipment

Back To School

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 fall toward the bottom of necessity spending.

The Love Fund partners with the community at large to collect school supplies and backpacks for local kids, providing them with the necessities they need to start the school year off better prepared and ready to learn.

Thanksgiving

Every year The Love Fund partners with the Kansas City Chiefs and the Chiefs Ambassadors to celebrate Thanksgiving with 60+ youth who face homelessness, abandonment and abuse in their lives. The Love Fund provides children an evening of food and fun where kids can just be kids.

Sack it for Santa

It has been identified that disadvantaged teens (12-18) are often forgotten at Holiday time. They are dealing with harsh life situations and very fragile egos. Through Sack It for Santa more than 1,500 teens will get to have a Christmas even though their family can't afford it. The Love Fund for Children partners with local companies, CVS and their patrons to fill red, Sack It for Santa gift for teens. The filled gift bags will then be donated by the Love Fund to teens in need, through area agencies.

Shop with the Love Fund

The Love Fund partners with the Kansas City Chiefs and Walmart to provide 60+ children with a $100 gift card to shop for special holiday gifts they otherwise wouldn’t have had the opportunity to purchase. For many the highlight of the evening is a sack full of toys, for others it’s getting to spend time with the men they consider heroes.
