Celebrate the holidays in July by signing up early to be a Holiday Hero!

Holiday Heroes provide gifts to local children and families participating in Youth Villages’ programs.  Generous donors and shoppers like YOU who sign up early enable us to fulfill the wish lists of more than 2,000 Middle Tennessee youth and children.

As your family, company, civic or religious group starts to plan for its volunteer project or philanthropic giving during the holiday season, please remember the Holiday Heroes program and bring children and youth near you a holiday they will always remember!



  • Sign up early to be matched with a child or a sibling group for the holidays.
  • Each child fills out a wish list. You will receive the wish list(s) in November.
  • Shop for the top three wish list items and deliver the gifts to Youth Villages.



  • Be a sponsor by donating to fulfill a child’s wish list or program holiday party. Sponsors provide the financial resources needed to purchase all the gifts for the kids who aren’t matched or come into our care days before the holiday break.
  • Sponsorship Levels:
    • $3,000 – YVLifeSet holiday party
    • $1,000 – Group home holiday parties
    • $500 – Wish list for a sibling group
    • $100 – Wish list for a child
