Help a child build holiday memories to last a lifetime.

Holiday Heroes provide gifts to local children and families participating in Youth Villages’ programs.  Generous donors and shoppers like YOU enable us to fulfill the wish lists of East Tennessee youth and children. 

Your family, company, civic or religious group can bring children and youth near you a holiday they will always remember! All donations will help the children we serve in East Tennessee.



  • Each child fills out a wish list.
  • Heroes receive the wish list, purchase the gifts, and then deliver the gifts to the assigned program’s location.


  • Donate online with the button above to sponsor a child, and we do all the shopping and wrapping. We ask for $100 for each child’s wish list.
  • These funds can also be used for a child coming into our care days before the holidays.
