Help Stuff Our Holiday Barrels to Support Local Families

Holiday Barrel

The City of Merriam needs your help collecting donated items for our holiday drive. We are partnering with the Johnson County Christmas Bureau (JCCB) to provide holiday wish-list items for thousands of low-income families in Johnson County. 


How you can help:

  • Pick out new, unwrapped items from the wish list – these include coats (new or gently used); gloves, hats, and scarves; toys, gifts for kids, teens, and adults; kids’ clothing; books; canned goods; nursing home items; personal care items; and household supplies.


  • Drop off your donations at Merriam City Hall or the Irene B. French Community Center during normal business hours by Nov. 15. 


Founded in 1960, the JCCB is a nonprofit organization that provides holiday assistance to Johnson County residents. The group puts on an annual holiday shop where prequalified clients can select needed items and gifts just before the holiday season. JCCB serves about 12,000 local residents each year – about half are under the age of 18. Find more information at jccb.org.
