JCCB Executive Director

Nina Kimbrough has a heart for people. It is her desire to share her gifts and talents to make a positive impact on children and families.

Nina is a Trainer, Speaker, and Outreach & Event Consultant. She grew up in the Kansas City area and went to Wichita State University, where she earned

a BA Degree in Communications/Radio-TV-Film/Journalism.


Twenty-five years ago, she left corporate America to work in non-profits. Prior to joining Johnson County Christmas Bureau, Nina was the Recruitment & Training Director for CASA of Johnson & Wyandotte Counties for over 16 years.


Nina has trained over 1100 volunteers and, in the community, has been asked to speak on various topics: including Volunteer Opportunities, Women’s Empowerment, DE&I, and more. She has encouraged, informed, and enlightened thousands to become involved in community engagement.


Nina has created, planned, and executed several hundred successful trainings and events from concept to closeout. Her expertise in this area has allowed many businesses and non-profits to make an impact in their community, connect with business partners, raise needed funds, and serve individuals in need.


Nina leads a Woman’s Impact Group and is very active in the community, including Boards, Educational Liaison, and Community Outreach Programs. She believes that positive programming helps develop high impact leaders with strong character, self-awareness, and leadership skills. Her passion is Mission work in the United States and abroad.

A message from JCCB Board President Barbara Kopack-Hill:

We are excited that Nina Kimbrough has joined the JCCB team. Nina’s extensive background in the nonprofit world, working with volunteers, and her passion for making a positive difference in the lives of children and their families are qualities that perfectly align with our mission. Her endless energy and willingness to take on new challenges is already evident within the first few months. She has spent time getting to know the volunteer leads, writing grants, reaching out to meet with existing and potential donors, and working to fill vacant volunteer lead positions. JCCB looks forward to her leadership and her guidance as we continue to develop sustainable partnerships and to grow our economic security for the future.   Welcome aboard, Nina!

Holiday SHOP Testimonial:

I just wanted to say from the bottom of my heart. thank you for your generosity.

I am grateful for all that you do, but this year it's especially true. I'd like to thank my helper Hannah, who also has twins, and all the volunteers.

The icing on the cake were the coats with tags! My twins are 5 and this is the first time they have had brand new coats. I feel so blessed! I will be able to send them to school with their own names on their coats! Thank you so much for all that you do!

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Betty Athey on February 6, 2022. She leaves her husband, Dick, and many children and grandchildren. Betty was a volunteer at the Christmas Bureau for over 20 years, serving as chair of the Client Services Committee, working with her friend Deborah Owens, and many others over the years. Betty also served on the JCCB Board of Directors into her 80’s, contributing greatly to the many discussions, always putting the needs of the clients first. Betty was awarded the JCCB Volunteer of the Year in 2017 by her fellow volunteers, a testament of how much she was admired and respected. She was a gentle, quiet person, a retired special education teacher, with a strong and thoughtful presence. Betty will be truly missed by all who knew her throughout the years.
