Holiday Heroes - Ways to Participate

Help a child build holiday memories to last a lifetime.

Join Youth Villages this holiday season to help make the holidays a happy time for more than 1,000 children and young adults in West Tennessee. We work to ensure that every child in our care has gifts to celebrate the season, and we rely on the support of our community partners and individuals to make that happen. Please help us by becoming a Holiday Hero and shopping for or sponsoring a child. All donations – 100% - will go directly to the children served by Youth Villages in West Tennessee. Any support is greatly appreciated and will make a huge difference in the lives of the children we serve.
