Always thinking of how we can help others
During the Christmas season and really all through the year, we strive to be a positive influence and help people in any way we can. You can always make a positive difference no matter how small the deed. The world is filled with selfish and hateful tendencies but it's important to overcome that -- not only at Christmastime but throughout the year. Do your best to spread good, without expecting anything in return. We should always ask ourselves, "what can we do to make someone's day better?"
Christmas isn't just a day, it's a frame of mind
That line from the popular Christmas movie, Miracle on 34th Street, is so much more than just a simple sentence. We interpret it to mean we should strive to carry that loving, giving, understanding Christmas Spirit with us not only during the holiday season but throughout the entire year. Be kind and spread kindness to others. You never know what another person is going through in their life. Try to be understanding of them and patient. Lend an ear or a helping hand and show you care.
Ronald McDonald House Kansas City
A place for families to stay while their sick child undergoes hospital treatment. RMHKC has been a beacon to so many over the years. We are proud to be able to deliver hundreds of toys for Santa's Toy Shop each year. Families "shop" for free and take whatever they need for their family.
The Salvation Army Children's Shelter
Every Christmas Eve -- the most magical night of the year -- Santa and his Elves make this stop a priority, delivering gifts and good cheer to each child spending this special night at the Shelter. The Shelter has served as a safe haven and cared for hundreds of children who could not be in their homes over the years. We are pleased to be able to make the Shelter a priority stop for Santa and his special Elves every Christmas Eve.
