The Gladstone Mayor's Christmas Tree Fund is an annual campaign that raises money for local charities. For 2020, Mayor Jean Moore has selected Feed Northland Kids and The Northland Christmas Store as the fund's recipients. Please join Mayor Moore in supporting these two wonderful organizations!
More information about the charities:
- Feed Northland Kids: Feed Northland Kids provides backpacks full of food to send home each weekend with over 900 hungry elementary school children in the North Kansas City School District. In addition, Feed Northland Kids has established school pantries in middle and high schools in the northland. When the economic impact of the COVID-19 crisis hit, FNK created the Community Food Kit program and has been distributing packages of food and produce to hundreds of our most vulnerable families each week.
- Northland Christmas Store: Since 1988, the Northland Christmas Store has been dedicated to providing food, hygiene products, and new toys to children and families during the Christmas season. Annually, 1,000 deserving families and senior citizens in Clay County are served.
