Join Our Holiday Heroes Program

Start a new tradition - sign up to be a Holiday Hero!

Start a new tradition and make this holiday season one to remember! KVC serves hundreds of youth in foster care and they’re each full of unique dreams this holiday season. With your help, we can make their dreams a reality.

KVC West Virginia has collected and provided gifts to children in foster care for over 10 years. Because of our incredible Holiday Heroes, we were able to provide gifts for nearly 200 families and 1,000 children in foster care last year.

Children who find themselves in foster care are victims of abuse, neglect or other family challenges. While our foster families provide so much love and care to the children and teens they serve, as well as a safe place to live, it can be difficult to provide “extra” items like presents during the holidays. Becoming a Holiday Hero is a rewarding way for you to show these kids how special they are!

Anyone can be a Holiday Hero – individuals, families, churches, community organizations, or businesses. Simply choose how you’d like to donate from the options below and donate new, unwrapped gifts to youth in foster care by December 9. Find a drop off location close to you here.

Thank you for your support this holiday season! Our deadline for Holiday Heroes was December 9. If you would like to participate next year, please submit this form or check back in October.

Can’t sponsor a child’s entire wish list? Make a donation online or visit our Amazon wish list to ship items directly to KVC for distribution to kids in foster care.

Thank you for becoming a KVC Holiday Hero!
