Holiday Gifts


This year we are pleased to announce our partnership with NASB to make the holidays a little brighter for the youth and families we serve at NASB’s North Pole!  There are a multitude of ways that you can support Cornerstones of Care’s mission and have a positive impact on families in the Kansas City area and beyond this holiday season.

  • Sponsor-a-Youth —In 2020 we fulfilled the Christmas wish lists for over 1000 youth!  If you are interested in sponsoring a youth this year and would like to receive a wish list, contact Becca at becca.cameron@cornerstonesofcare.org.
  • Gift Gallery — You can donate new, unwrapped items for children, teens and adults for our Gift Gallery, where families in our community-based programs shop at no cost to ensure everyone in the household has a gift to open during the holidays. Donation drop-off days are scheduled at 9050 Metcalf on December 2 and 4. This flyer outlines the items you can donate. Contact Stefanie at stefanie.caravella@cornerstonesofcare.org for more details or with any questions.
  • Gift Cards — Individuals and groups can spread some holiday cheer by providing gifts for children and families in our care (or $20 gift cards to Walmart or Target).
  • Holiday Fund — Want to help but can’t donate items? You can make a monetary donation to our holiday fund to help us make sure we’re able to provide the best holiday support.
