Holiday Heroes - Ways to Participate

Providing winter essentials and holiday gifts
for children and families in need across East Tennessee.

Join Youth Villages this holiday season to provide more than 450 children and young adults with winter essentials and holiday gifts. The gifts will support those children’s families who simply cannot afford necessities, let alone presents, during the holiday season.

We rely on the support of our community partners and individuals to host drives or make monetary donations to provide winter boots, bikes and winter clothing for a child and his or her siblings. All donations – 100% -- will go directly to the children served by Youth Villages in East Tennessee. By supporting our efforts, you can be the Holiday Hero that our youth and families desperately need! Work with us to let these children know they are valuable to our community. Any support is greatly appreciated and will help make a huge difference in the lives of the children we serve.

Monetary Donations


  • Each child fills out a Wish List of 3 gifts.
  • Heroes receive the Wish List, purchase the top three gifts (new gifts only), bundle the unwrapped gift in a clear bag, and then deliver the gifts to your local East Tennessee office.

  • Heroes send a donation to sponsor a last minute kid and we do all the shopping for that child coming into our care days before the holidays.
