Operation Holiday

Celebrating 60 Years of Help at the Holidays.

Each year generous individuals (like you!) and organizations come together with HumanKind Ministries to run Wichita’s largest holiday assistance program, Operation Holiday. More than providing basic needs to Sedgwick County’s most vulnerable residents, Operation Holiday brings our community together in a spirit of human kindness to spread hope—showing our low-income neighbors that their community cares.

Operation Holiday distribution will take place Monday, Dec, 16th through Wednesday, Dec. 18th. You can drop off donations in our administrative building located at 829 N. Market M-F, 8:30am-5pm, or at our Operation Holiday warehouse in the former Sears building in Towne West during the following hours:

Nov. 18-22: 10am-6pm
Nov. 25-27: 10am-6pm
Dec. 2-6: 9am-6pm
Dec. 7: 10am-4pm
Dec. 9-13: 9am-6pm
Dec. 14: 10am-4pm
Dec. 15: 1-4pm

Distribution Hours:
Dec. 16 & 17: 9am-6pm
Dec. 18: 10am-7pm


Contact us if you have any questions or concerns.


More than 14,000 low-income children and adults need our help to get through the year’s coldest (and most expensive months). Please consider supporting this important work with a donation today—no gift is too small and every bit helps.



Looking for warm fuzzies this holiday season? Volunteer with us! We have opportunities now through distribution, which will take place Dec. 16th, 17th, and 18th. Click here to fill out an individual volunteer form or reach out to our Community Outreach Coordinator at greer@humankindwichita.org or 316-264-9303 to schedule a group volunteer opportunity.

Host or Donate at a Collection Site.

You can donate nonperishable food, gently used and new children’s coats only (we have received an abundance of adult coats and cannot store anymore, thank you!) and blankets, and monetary donations at our admin office located at 829 N. Market during normal business hours, M-F from 8:30am-5pm. Beginning in November, you can also drop off donations at any of the generous collection sites included in the map below, as well as our Operation Holiday warehouse (please see above for location and hours).
