A beloved annual Missoula event, KYSSMAS for Kids, is returning in 2023 to benefit kids in Missoula. If you're a long-time donor, or just stumbling on this information, read on to find out what you need to know for this year's event.

What is KYSSMAS for Kids?

KYSSMAS is a many-decade tradition of raising money for local kids in need, giving presents to those children who would otherwise go without. We partner with local groups who pass along the donations to those in need in the form of gift cards. Groups we've partnered with include:

  • Office of Public Assistance
  • St. Pat's Mental Health Center
  • YWCA
  • Sanders County Coalition
  • LIGHT (Low Income Group for Human Treatment)
  • The CDC
  • Seeley Lake School
  • Big Sky High School
  • Hellgate High School
  • Sentinel High School

The way we raise money is through an auction and through direction donations.

When Is KYSSMAS for Kids This Year?

The event will take place on December 8, 2023, from 6:00 am - 7:00 pm. That's when you can bid on auction items or make a donation.

Of course, part of the fun of KYSSMAS is calling in to place your bid on an auction item, but we want as many people to participate as possible. That's why we've added another way to participate: online.

Whether you call or bid online, everyone's bids will be counted. But if you want to keep an eye on how your favorite auction items are doing, you'll want to have kyssmas.com bookmarked on your browser.
