Each day in the Kansas City Metro area, more children and families find themselves in crisis and in need of assistance. In this tough economic climate, the families we serve find themselves in greater need than ever before. Each year, the Gillis Gift Gallery is stocked with new gifts by generous donors throughout our community. The families we work with receive Gift Gallery donations to make their holidays a little brighter and to ensure that no family member goes without gifts during this most joyous of seasons.
