Operation Holiday

Operation Holiday

Making Spirits Bright Since 1960

For more than 60 years, HumanKind Ministries has brought the community together to run Wichita’s largest holiday assistance program, Operation Holiday. More than providing basic needs and toys, Operation Holiday helps our region’s most vulnerable residents get through the year’s coldest (and most expensive) months—and shows them that their community cares.


Operation Holiday 2021 distribution took place in December and together with our wonderful volunteers, sponsors, and supporters, we made the holidays brighter for more than 12,000 people! A huge thank you to everyone that volunteered, donated, hosted a collection drive, or helped spread the word to those that needed our help. You all helped make a big difference to thousands of families’ holidays.

Get Involved

Operation Holiday will return in 2022. If you’d like to support it there are several ways to get involved in the fall, individually or as a group.

  1. Host a collection drive
  2. Donate Items
  3. Make a monetary donation
  4. Volunteer 

Sign up for email updates and follow us on Facebook and Instagram @HumanKindWichita and stay tuned as we announce more details later in the year.
