Holiday Heroes - Ways to Participate

Providing holiday gifts
for children and families in need across Middle Tennessee.

Join Youth Villages this holiday season to provide more than 2000 children and young adults with holiday gifts. The gifts will support children and 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 fulfill a child’s wish list or make monetary donations to provide gifts to Last Minute Kids who come into our care days before the holiday break.




Monetary Donations Fill a Wishlist Back Pack Heroes Holiday Heroes Holiday Heroes - Become a Sponsor Holiday Heroes - Volunteer Holiday Heroes


  • 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 the Nashville 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.
