Play Santa For A Child In Need!

Join The 40th Annual
KFDI Christmas Crusade For Children

Thanks to our community partner 

What is the KFDI Christmas Crusade For Children?

For the past 40 years, needy children in the Wichita area still had a magical Christmas morning thanks to the generosity and big hearts of the KFDI family of listeners.

KFDI, with the help of The Salvation Army and the Wichita Police Department, identifies needy children and asks our listeners to "play Santa" for a child or two during the Christmas season.

Each year, 1,000 or more children are helped!

When Can I call to get the name of one or more children to help?

The KFDI Christmas Crusade For Children "adopt-a-thon" is Monday and Tuesday, November 24-25th between 6:00am to 7:00pm each day.

Call 316-832-9002 Monday & Tuesday, Nov. 24 -25 to get the first name of a child in need, their age and a short wish list.

Or, visit the  KFDI Virtual Christmas Crusade Angel Tree. With a few clicks, you can find a child you'd like to adopt, along with their wish list.  Fill out a short form - then watch for your confirmation e-mail to begin.   

Virtual Angel Tree is LIVE!



What do I do after I buy the gift for my Christmas Angel?

Bring your new and unwrapped gift to the KFDI studio, 4200 No. Old Lawrence Road, Wichita (that is just north of 37th & Broadway North on the frontage road to the east of the railroad tracks.)

An Important Message

The Salvation Army coordinates the list of children for the KFDI Christmas Crusade.  All children have been determined to be eligible for the program and are not receiving gifts or assistance from any other agency.  Christmas Crusade does not accept names of children or requests for assistance on the hotline.  If you feel you need assistance for the holidays, please contact Inter-Faith Ministries Operation Holiday for possible assistance information.
