This ministry helps with collections of coats and books and provides a volunteer base to help needy families of Johnson Country “shop” at Christmas time. They help between 10,000 and 12,000 low income Johnson County Neighbors each year during the winter holiday season. The neighbors we help have a family income below 150% of the poverty line and reside in Johnson County, Kansas. Most of those we help have a member of the family who works but simply does not earn enough to rise above 150% of the poverty level. 1 in 9 Johnson County jobs pay less than $10.00 per hour. 1/3 of all Johnson County jobs pay less than $15.00 per hour. It takes more than $15.00 per hour for a family of 4 to pull themselves above 150% of the poverty level. The majority of the neighbors we help have a high school diploma and some college education.
This agency allows parents to shop for their children’s gifts! Everything is new in the store, except the used books and coats. The collection of used books goes on in the fall and coats goes on during the month of November and we collect donated coats and books from the garage sale.
