Bring a Little Magic to a Childs Holiday

Bring a Little Magic to a Childs Holiday

It's that time of year when the generosity of our communities comes shining through. As we enjoy the beauty of fall and move closer to Thanksgiving and Christmas, we feel fortunate knowing that our communities always step up to support our efforts to make the holidays magical for the children and families we serve.

There are many ways to engage during this holiday season. Whether it be through volunteering your time, purchasing gifts, or making a monetary donation. You can make a significant difference during a season that can be especially difficult for children and families suffering the impacts of trauma.

Giving Tuesday

Help make this #GivingTuesday one to remember and join us today as we raise funds to provide 300 pairs of shoes to children in foster care. To make this year bigger and better than ever, an anonymous donor is matching all donations up to $5,000. That's big news! This means that all of your gifts today will have DOUBLE the impact.

Pies for a Purpose

Are you a little stressed because you don't have time to bake for family gatherings? Pies for a Purpose makes getting or giving Tippin's pies easier than ever! Simply purchase a $15 gift certificate and take it to any Kansas City metro area Price Chopper from October 1 through January 15, 2022, to receive a tasty pie. But the best part is that you can enjoy that pie guilt-free because $6 of every pie purchased will benefit the children and families we serve!

Set a New Year's Resolution to Help Children and Families

Keeping children safe and families together is at the heart of the work we do. We cannot do this without the assistance of our volunteers and donors.
