About The Event

This is a self-led family project. 

The Love Fund for Children has a mission of helping build a stronger Kansas City Community in which every child lives a life without need. One of their many programs is called Sack it for Santa. KindCraft will be helping to fill sacks for TEENS.

The majority of the teens who receive the bags from Sack it for Santa are underprivileged. For most, the bag is their only gift. Many come from single-parent homes or live with grandparents/guardians.  

Most agencies/churches/programs focus on toys for younger children. Sack it for Santa only distributes bags to children aged 12-18 who are often overlooked or don't qualify. It has been identified that disadvantaged teens are always forgotten during holiday time. They are dealing with harsh life situations and very fragile egos. Through Sack it for Santa, hundreds of teens will get to have a Christmas even though their families can't afford it.

This year the bags will be packed according to four themes: Art, Games, Spa/Beauty, and Sports. We will gladly accept items of any amount, but $40 is our goal amount 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. 

Please select one of the four 2023 themes for your bag. The items listed are suggestions, but you can be creative with your shopping as well. Just keep the teenage group in mind! 

The suggested gift amount per bag is $40.
