Youth Villages Holiday Hero

To become a Holiday Hero, individuals, families, or groups (such as businesses, civic groups or church congregations) may request a child’s wish list by visiting www.youthvillages.org/holidayheroes and selecting “Middle Tennessee.”

Holiday Heroes have the opportunity to provide a local child with a new bike or new shoes, but always a memory they will always remember.

The Holiday Heroes program also has the option to donate to fulfill youth holiday wishes. A $100.00 donation will cover a child’s complete holiday wish list. However, Youth Villages is thankful for any donation amount.

Donations to the Holiday Heroes program helps provide gifts for children who come into care days before the holiday.

To donate to the Holiday Heroes fund, please visit www.youthvillages.org/holidayheroes.

For more information, please contact Lyndsay Wilkinson at Youth Villages at 615.250.7323 or at
