The WKCAC is always in need of donations. We serve children from 2 to 18 years of age, both male and female. Every child that is brought to the WKCAC receives a bag of items that they can take home with them. Often children are removed from their home with few or no personal things. To see a child receive a WKCAC bag is like a child opening a Christmas present. It is magical and each item seems to be special to them. Your donations are not only appreciated by the WKCAC, but especially appreciated by the children. Thank you for your interest in providing a child a little hope and a smile.   


Every bag contains a blanket, stuffed animal, educational/prevention information depending on age and hygiene items (such as: soap, shampoo/conditioner, toothbrush, toothpaste, and a comb/brush). Other items that may be included in the bags are school supplies, pajamas, coloring books, toys, etc.
