Become a Holiday Hero

Looking for a way to give back this holiday season? Become a KVC Hospitals Holiday Hero! You can help make this holiday season bright for a child or teen in care at one of our youth psychiatric hospitals.

This holiday season, we have a large need to provide gifts for youth ages 6 to 18! Many of the youth we are caring for are in acute care and unable to leave campus, don’t have a home to return to, or won’t receive visitors during the holidays. Imagine living away from home during the holiday season and wondering if you will have gifts to open. Becoming a Holiday Hero is a great way for you to support these kids and teens and show them how very special they are.

Holiday Heroes can be an individual, family, church, community organization or business. You can specify the number of youth you wish to purchase gifts for, as well as provide age and gender preferences. Simply register to become a Holiday Hero, purchase gifts from the wish list we send you via email, and then drop off the gifts at one of our hospitals by December 20, 2018. We’ll host holiday parties to provide the gifts to the youth in our care.

We know the holidays are a busy time, so if you don’t have time to shop, please consider making a donation online or dropping off gift cards.

If you have any questions or are unable to deliver the gift(s) you plan to purchase, please contact Sarah Coplen at or (913) 890-7404. For drop off locations, see below.
