12 Days of Christmas at KML

Over twelve days in December, KML’s Student Council and National Honor Society work to collect money through student involvement to support families in need. Parents, federation members, alumni, friends, and the community are encouraged to donate as well.

This December we are raising money to help the Albrecht, Bintz, Pfund, and Westeen families. For more information about these families or the 12 Days of Christmas at KML, visit



THANK YOU for Your Prayers & Support on GivingTuesday!

We are so very thankful! What a blessing to have your prayers and support to advance the KML ministry.

Our challenge of $64,533 was surpassed in ONE day with your gifts of $70,688! The total support given to KML on GivingTuesday with the match is OVER $135,221! All praise to our Heavenly Father who has blessed us through you!

With so many great ministries to support on GivingTuesday, we are especially thankful that you used your gifts to advance our ministry to more than 530 students and their families. God’s love will continue to be shared for generations to come. Thank you for your partnership with KML.
