The mission of the Johnson County Christmas Bureau (JCCB) is to:
We serve between 10,000 and 12,000 low-income neighbors each year. We meet our mission by utilizing volunteers for almost all functions. For information concerning volunteers please go to the volunteer page
We run a 9 day Holiday Shop during the month of December. At the Holiday Shop pre-qualified clients shop by appointment. All clients are below 150% of the poverty level and reside in Johnson County, Kansas. The Holiday Shop is similar to a department store. Our Holiday Shop is the original pop-up. Each client is assisted by a volunteer.
EACH CLIENT VISITING THE HOLIDAY SHOP HAS THE DIGNITY OF SELECTING THEIR OWN MERCHANDISE, IS PERSONALLY ESCORTED THROUGH THE SHOP BY A VOLUNTEER AND RECEIVES ALL OF THE FOLLOWING:
We are distributing merchandise right now in order to help our neighbors in need during the Covid-19 Crises. This is stretching our resources. Please visit our donate page. We need your help and support more than ever.
Nursing homes can pick up packages at the beginning of the Holiday Shop to distribute to their residents on Medicaid. Packages can include various different items such as pajamas, slipper socks, twin bedding, lap quilts, tool belts and walker bags. The nursing homes then distribute the packages to their residents. If you are a Johnson County nursing home serving residents on Medicaid, please contact us for more information.
