Help FOX 4 and The Love Fund ‘Sack it for Santa’

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Fox 4 and The Fox 4 Love Fund for Children are teaming up again this Christmas to bring smiles to the faces of teenagers at Christmas. Teens are sometimes overlooked by holiday gift-giving programs, but their need is just as great.

You can help by filling a sack of gifts just for teens. If you have any questions you may call the Fox 4 Love Fund for Children office at 816-932-9170. Sacks can be dropped off at participating CVS locations by December 10 at 6 p.m. You may also bring a filled sack to Fox 4, located at 3030 Summit Street, Kansas City, Mo. 64108 on Monday-Friday (8:30 a-4:30p).

If you'd like to simply donate, the suggested amount is $40 and all of the shopping will be done for you. You can donate here.
