Become a Holiday Hero in New England

Help a child build holiday memories to last a lifetime.

Your support is assuring no youth in our programs goes without a gift this holiday season. Be a Holiday Hero by helping Youth Villages to provide winter essentials and holiday gifts to over 300 youth and young adults in Massachusetts and New Hampshire



  • Heroes send a donation to sponsor a child and we do all the shopping and wrapping.
  • 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.



  • 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.
  • All of this year’s wish lists have now been assigned! We encourage you to make a donation or attend our Cornhole event to support the drive.
