Kansas City Royals volunteer

In the spirit of giving, the Kansas City Royals will once again serve families in need this holiday season. The team will volunteer for the Johnson County Christmas Bureau on Friday, November 30.

Pitcher Felipe Paulino will distribute food, winter clothing and holiday gifts with Royals Sr. Vice President-Business Operations Kevin Uhlich and Royals associates at 2 p.m. at the Johnson County Christmas Bureau.

The Johnson County Christmas Bureau is a volunteer, non-profit organization and United Way agency created in 1960 that provides necessary assistance to low-income families of Johnson County, Kansas. Qualified low-income families and individuals are scheduled by appointment and assisted by a volunteer during one of the nine days of the Holiday Shop to select groceries, toys, gifts, personal care items and clothing for their families. The Holiday Shop was established in 1977.

More than 3,400 families and 650 nursing home residents were served by the Holiday Shop in 2011.
