Donation collection

multiple ways to help

For over 25 years, Kids First has committed to provide a positive Christmas experience to thousands of children and families in need. Receiving no federal or state funding, we must rely on local businesses and individuals like you, to provide us with necessary resources, hoping to fulfill this commitment to our community. We identify families in need through a vast network of sponsors, teachers, guidance counselors, social workers, neighborhood leaders, family, friends and co-workers.

Each child is asked for a wish list. Many only ask for food, clothing, shoes or socks. We try to give each child two of their wishes and clothing. These gifts are wrapped and ready to be placed under the tree. If they don’t have a tree, we can provide that too!

toy donations

Toy donations can be brought with you to the venue on the day of the event. Donations can also be dropped off before December 21st at Omega Sports or at the Kids First Donation Center. See below for exact location and hours of operation.

MEET Devin Funchess

NFL Wide receiver | Cooking enthusiast

Devin Funchess was born on May 21, 1994, in Farmington Hills, Michigan. As he grew up, his parents enrolled him at Harrison High School in Farmington Hills where he actively participated in running track, playing basketball and of course football. As it is with many others who are now professionals but began playing football in high school, Funchess focused more on the pigskin sports which he played with all his heart.


After his junior year at the University of Michigan, Devin was selected 41st overall in the second round by the Carolina Panthers in the 2015 NFL Draft. As a rookie wide receiver Devin racked up 31 receptions for 473 yards and 5 touchdowns. In 2016 Devin played in 15 games with 7 starts, and made 23 catches for 371 yards and 4 touchdowns. He led Carolina with a team-high 16.1-yard receiving average. In 2017 Devin started every game for the Panthers as the number one receiver. He led the team with 840 receiving yards and 8 receiving touchdowns. He also had a career-high 63 receptions, which was second most on the team. For this 2018 season, Devin is continuing to make strides in his play and is putting together a strong season.
