We'd love your help filling bail boxes!
Bail Boxes are kits that our clients receive when they are released after we post their bond. The boxes contain essentials to make the first day or two after release a bit easier. Bail Boxes are gifts of comfort, compassion, and concern for the well-being of those we help. We welcome donations of these items to help fill Bail Boxes:
- Travel size or full size bottles of shampoo, conditioner, and shaving cream
- Full-size bars of soap
- Toothbrushes and full-size toothpaste
- Lip balm/ChapStick
- Disposable razors
- Laundry detergent pods
- Pocket-packs of tissues
- Small brushes and combs
- Nail clippers and nail files
- Bottles of water
- Snacks such as protein bars, granola bars, individually packaged nuts, trail mix, crackers and cheese, crackers and peanut butter, etc.
- $5 gift cards to fast-food restaurants or Quik-Trip
- $25 Wal-Mart gift cards to purchase clothing for court appearances
The Bail Boxes provide immediate help to our clients while we evaluate their needs and connect them with agencies that can provide long-term solutions. Donations are needed and appreciated any time! If you have items to donate and would like to arrange a pickup time and location, or if you would like more information about the Bail Boxes, please email Janet@kcbail.fund We also welcome monetary donations that allow us to purchase bulk quantities of items for the Bail Boxes, and to purchase backpacks that are often needed and appreciated by those we bail out.
