Johnson County Christmas Bureau has been gifted the use of a residential home (Gast House) to store items that have been donated or purchased for the Holiday Shop.
JCCB recently received several donations of holiday items and other merchandise to be used at our 2017 Holiday Shop. Serve KC Volunteers are needed to help box these items for storage.
The boxes will be stored in the garage at the Gast House; however, before they can be moved, the garage needs to be organized. Serve KC Volunteers are needed to help move empty boxes(they have been broken down) and other items from the garage to the basement.
Parking: The Gast House is the only house on the street (which is marked as a private drive) and parking can be limited. You may want to park in the parking lot at Holy Trinity Catholic Church directly across the street.
DRESS: Wear comfortable clothing you won’t mind getting dirty and close toe shoes. You may want to bring your own work gloves and a water bottle.
If you have any questions or have trouble finding the Gast House call Dorris Kissee 913.744.5266.
The Johnson County Christmas Bureau provides holiday assistance to low-income residents of Johnson County, Kansas. At the annual Holiday Shop, pre-qualified clients, by appointment, 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. At the 2016 Holiday Shop, JCCB served over 10,000 individuals representing 3,500 families and 921 nursing home residents.
200 volunteers donate their time year round. 3,000 community volunteers donate their time from mid-November to mid-December to make the Holiday Shop a success.
