Kansas City Star: Northland teens reach out to Children's Mercy patients
The public is invited to Stuff the Bus with gifts for hospitalized children Saturday at the Liberty Target, 9220 N.E. Barry Road, Kansas City, North.
This is the fifth annual Stuff the Bus, spearheaded by two Northland teens who know personally what it’s like to spend a Christmas — and other holidays — as patients at Children’s Mercy.
Caleb Wolf, 16, Raegan Weber 13, and others, will accept donations at their Henson’s Heroes bus from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. December 17.
The wish list includes books, Legos, Fisher Price Little People, infant toys with lights or music, infant rattles, headphones/ear buds, scarves, journals, nail polish/lip gloss, purses/wallets, watches, clothing, sleepers, sweat pants, fleece throws. Other items are welcome.
Gifts of toy guns, swords, bows/arrows or toy knives are discouraged.
The donations go to hospitalized children as well as to the Snowflake Shoppe at Children’s Mercy which is a place for parents to shop free while their child is hospitalized.
To date the Henson’s Heroes Stuff the Bus campaign has brought in over $125,000 worth gifts for Children’s Mercy patients and patient families.
