Get Involved With HALO This Holiday Season

Looking to make a difference in the lives of homeless and at-risk youth this holiday season? Here are just a few ways you can get involved with HALO. 

  • ArtDoesGood

    Join the HALO ART-a-THON. It’s just like a marathon except instead of running, you create. #ArtDoesGood turns creativity into a safe place to live for homeless kids.

    3 Ways to Participate - Choose 1

    1. Start an individual or team fundraising page, pledge your time, then start making art.

    2. Support homeless children by starting a fundraising page and sharing why you support HALO (no creativity required). 

    3. Make a donation. 

  • Pass Down Your Holiday Traditions

    Help our youth start new traditions by providing supplies for them to experience one of your family's traditions. Maybe your tradition is making cookies while watching a holiday movie. You can drop off a cookie kit and the movie so our youth have the chance to experience a new tradition. By doing this you are allowing them to have a positive experience during the holidays and the opportunity to pass down these traditions to their own children one day.

  • Provide a Gift To A HALO Child

    Help us provide small gifts to our youth to help them celebrate the holidays.

  • Donate Holiday Decorations

    Donate new or gently used holiday decorations for HALO Kansas City and Jefferson City to help our youth get in the holiday spirit. 

Give A Gift That Gives Back

  • Purchase a HALO Makers Reclaimed Wood Serving Tray

    Do you love cheese boards, charcuterie, or beautiful wood centerpieces? Purchase a limited edition tray, handcrafted by our HALO Youth and unique in style using a variety of reclaimed woods.

  • HALO Merchandise

    Shop for HALO merchandise for yourself or to give as a holiday gift

  • Purchase The Sycamore Bark Art Collection

    Shop in-store or online for a unique art piece from Place Interiors. Giving new life to the bark of a sycamore tree takes on a deeper meaning as it relates to HALO's mission of providing valuable life skills to change a child's direction in a positive way.

    This collection of handstitched, assembled art incorporating natural materials gives new life to the fallen bark of a sycamore tree. All profits from this collection benefit HALO.

Ways To Get Involved Any Time Of Year

  • Sign up as a HALO Tribe Member

    Become part of our special HALO Tribe family and be a recurring donor monthly, quarterly, or annually. Regular donations erase hungry bellies, stop abusive situations in their tracks, and helps HALO kids heal what has been broken.

  • Power Packs

    Our youth in Kansas City are in need of PowerPack supplies. Necessary goods like hygienic supplies, food, and clothes can make a real difference in our kids’ lives. It helps them feel good about themselves and better able to concentrate on school or job training. PowerPacks are a way to make sure they don’t have to worry about these things if they find themselves in a tough spot.
