Theatre in the Park and Johnson County Christmas Bureau

JCCB will be the featured charity at The Theatre in the Park production of “The Drowsy Chaperone.” The Theatre in the Park is an outdoor amphitheatre tucked into 10 beautiful acres in Shawnee Mission Park with a separate entrance. 

Serve KC Volunteers are needed to staff the canned goods donation barrels and hand out brochures in groups of 3. When the public brings a donation of canned goods they will receive a coupon for free popcorn. Park staff will be standing along side of Serve KC volunteers and will distribute the popcorn coupons. 

Bring a chair or blanket and enjoy the night’s performance of “The Drowsy Chaperone” for free! In addition, if you would like to donate canned goods you will receive a coupon for free popcorn.

JCCB provides holiday assistance to low-income residents of Johnson County, Kansas. In 2015, JCCB served almost 12,000 individuals representing over 3,500 families. Items of warmth and sustenance are provided at JCCB’s annual holiday shop, to pre-qualified neighbors, by appointment. Those qualified can select groceries, personal care and household supplies, children’s clothing, hats, gloves, scarves, coats, toys, gifts, and books pegged to family size, age, and gender. All items are new with the exception of books and coats. The JCCB is a volunteer-based organization, with minimal paid staff, so that resources can be used for those in need.
