Operation Holidays

For over forty years during the holiday season, the Kansas City Federation of Teachers & School Related Personnel has helped district families not as fortunate as others. Each year, we have adopted KCPS families in need. This year, we will again provide families with a grocery store gift card.    

 

Please consider making a contribution to this worthy cause. You can make checks payable to the KCFT & SRP, and you can send your contribution via interoffice or regular mail to 3901 Main Street, Suite 201, KCMO 64111. You can also contribute online to our PayPal account by clicking the donate button below.

 

Finally,  if you have a family at your site that could benefit from a gift card, please submit their name by completing an application. The number of families we can serve will be determined by the amount of money we raise. The Welfare Committee will screen the applications to select the neediest families.
