How to qualify?
KONY Coins for Kids assistance is for children 2-17 years of age.
18 year old children residing in the same home may apply if they are still attending high school.
Infants under 2 year old may apply IF there are other children in the family between 2-17 years of age.
In other words, an application with only ONE child that is under 2 years of age will be denied and referred to Toys for Tots.
