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 Georgia 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 across Georgia.



  • Please visit our Amazon Wishlist or purchase items from the wish list below and drop off at the address below.
  • You can also host an in-kind drive to collect items to drop off for the holidays. Click the “Fill a Wish List” button above to sign up.



  • Heroes send a donation to sponsor a child, and we do all the shopping and wrapping.
  • These funds may also be used to provide gifts for a child coming into our care days before the holidays.
