Kansas City area free Christmas and holiday assistance programs.

Holiday help, ranging from free Christmas gifts to assistance at Thanksgiving (including turkey dinners), is available across the Kansas City region and nearby counties. There are Christmas stores, Toys for Tots from Marine Corp partners, Angel Tree and more. Most of the charities that operate these programs only provide services to a limited area, however there are options in all counties. More information is below on where to turn to for free toys or Christmas or Thanksgiving food baskets in Jackson, Cass, Clay, or Platte County.

The programs available tend to be either Adopt a Family or toy giveaways. Due to this, there is also a need for further donations and participation of the greater Kansas City Missouri community. Everything from gift cards from retailers such as Wal-Mart to educational toys, DVDs, games, Legos, video games, and more are always in demand.

Families in need of help at the holidays should register / apply early. While the goal is to provide each child in the Kansas City region a gift, or family a Thanksgiving or Christmas meal, due to the demand on the charities this is not always possible.
