HALO serves over a half a million meals each year.

We serve children who come from homeless and unimaginable circumstances that they did not choose for themselves. Help us keep our promise that being a HALO child means never having to worry about your next meal. The HALO Change That Counts box was created for you to make an impact in a very easy way. Simply gather spare change. Our goal is to raise enough funds to provide all HALO meals for an entire year.

Where we are

The simplest way to make change for a child in need.

No investment is too small. Each time you drop a quarter in the HALO Change That Counts box, a child in need is provided a warm meal.

Be a Change Ambassador. Sign up below to receive your box(es) in the mail. It's a perfect year round fundraiser for yourself, your family, school, group, or business.


Once you fill up your box(es), please drop it off at a HALO location, mail in a check for the amount to HALO 1600 Genessee, Suite 200 Kansas City, MO 64102 or make an online donation.

Ways groups are making an impact:

  • A school is challenging students to raise a certain amount. Each child gets a box and brings it back to school before Holiday Break. If they reach their classroom goal, students get to pie their teacher at the all-school assembly.
  • A business is handing out boxes to employees. If they reach their goal of $10,000, the boss will wear a squirrel costume for the entire company party. And 40,000 meals will be given to children in need.
  • A church is passing out boxes to their congregation and parishioners will bring their boxes to the alter on Christmas night.
  • A group of kids held a lemonade stand to raise money and help hungry children in need.
