Johnson County Christmas Bureau

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 2014 Holiday Shop, JCCB served 13,948 individuals representing 3,561 families and 707 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.

Founded in 1960, JCCB is a standalone non-denominational United Way safety net agency.

Speaking Opportunities

The Johnson County Christmas Bureau would appreciate the opportunity to share our story of brightening the holidays for low-income Johnson County families for more than 50 years.


"I want to express my gratitude for what you have done for me through the Christmas Bureau.  I have no close family left.  That's why I am so grateful for your Christmas Bureau.  Last year you helped me find a light jacket that fit me and I wear it around the houseALL the time.That way I can keep the heat lower. This year I got anotherjacket that fit, and I am so happy about that.  I sincerely appreciate your volunteers that helped me find the foods that I wanted and could eat. Your volunteers were so helpful, cheerful and kind. I know some people don't recognize that there is poverty in Johnson County.  There, however, are people like me.  You are SO  important to SO many people!!  Thank you, one and all, for yourkindness and your caring."
