Monday, November 5, 2018 - 12:00am to Sunday, December 9, 2018 - 12:00pm

A Christmas gift-giving program specifically geared for teens, 13-18 years-old. 

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 let them know they are valued and that they matter.

Please help Santa by filling the sack with special gifts just for teens. Sacks can be picked up and dropped off at any local CVS in the Kansas City Metro. Or if you prefer you may donate to the Sack it for Santa program through our website or by calling our office at (816) 932-9170. It's simple! You can donate, and our elves will shop and fill a bag for you! We suggest $40, but will gladly accept any amount.

The Love Fund works with a network of more than  500 youth service professionals — such as counselors, therapists, medical care providers, case managers, support coordinators and other professionals —  who can contact the Love Fund at info@lovefundforchildren.org to request an application for Christmas gift bags for teens under their care or supervision.

Through your generous support in 2017, we were able to distribute bags to 800 teens facing challenges. 

(Please note:  The Love Fund cannot work directly with, nor provide applications for gift bags to, parents or friends of teens in need.  We are only able to allocate bags through certified third-party youth service professionals within the 37-county Kansas City region.) 

Sponsorships available, please contact Allyson Summers at allyson.summers@lovefundforchildren.org or 816.932.9170 for more information.
