Join the Kansas City Atheist Coalition to ring in the winter season with a holiday gift exchange – white elephant style! Kids are welcome!

Got some old clothes around you don’t want, or perhaps a particularly embarrassingly bad book you saw on discount at Half Price Books? As long it’s $10 or less, bring it along for a groan-inducing exchange of gifts over tasty drinks and food at McCoy’s Public House!

We will also be using this event to collect gifts for the family we will be adopting this year. If you wish to claim an item, please message us either through Facebook or our e-mail address We will remove items as we are notified of their being claimed.

You are not required to wrap gifts, but open wrapping (e.g., gift bags) are preferred because it allows the care providers of the children to inspect the gifts and know ahead of time what their children are receiving.

In addition to the two children listed here, you can also bring gifts to donate for the whole family. The family asks for the following:

  • Ziploc quart & gallon bags
  • Clear heavy duty storage tubs
  • Clorox wipes
  • Scented candles or scentsy wax (lavender)
