The recipient chosen for the 2018 show is Kid's Aid. Established in Montrose in 2009, Kid's Aid is a 501C3 ministry of Common Ground Montrose. Working directly with Montrose/Olathe pre-schools through high schools, an all-volunteer staff stuff grocery bags to be sent home with children in need on Fridays to provide food for the child over the weekend. Food is also provided over school breaks and closures. As of January 2018, approximately 250 children benefit from Kid's Aid weekly efforts.
Volunteers are welcome to help stuff bags or sponsor a child for a year. Since the staff is comprised of volunteers, 100% of all food or financial donations go straight to providing food for the children.
