Red Stocking Breakfast is KCSL’s signature fundraising event. Multiple breakfasts will be held in December throughout the state to raise money for KCSL’s child abuse prevention programs and services. The events include local celebrities and volunteers serving food, a variety of fun activities like pictures with Santa Claus, and opportunities to enter raffles or bid on silent auction items from area retailers.
KCSL’s Holiday Tradition
The Red Stocking Breakfast is a continuance of a tradition of holiday giving to KCSL that started nearly 100 years ago. In the 1920s, the community was invited to take holiday gifts to children living at KCSL’s receiving home, a temporary residence for children awaiting a foster or adoptive home. These children would hang their “Little Red Stockings” in anticipation of the generosity of the community. KCSL will hold Red Stocking Breakfast events in four areas again this year: Emporia, Overland Park, Topeka and Wichita.
