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 more than 2,200 Middle 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 Middle Tennessee and the Nashville area.

HOW TO PARTICIPATE

This holiday season, local company Alternative Solutions will match all cash gifts to the Holiday Heroes campaign. Give today and double your impact this holiday season!

Youth Villages

Family is important. Throughout his time in our Intercept program, Chris worked hard to overcome his circumstances and become a great parent to Kash.

Today, Chris and Kash have a strong relationship and enjoy spending time together. Kash is an honor roll student, and Chris continues to work full time to provide a happy and healthy home.

Thanks to the amazing support of @konicaminolta and an anonymous donor, your gift today for #GivingTuesday will be tripled, helping families like Chris and Kash live together successfully!
