Friend In Need
Youth Villages of Middle Tennessee
Be a friend to a child who has very little or nothing at all!
Many of the children that come to Youth Villages have little more than the clothes on their back. By becoming a "friend in need" you can help provide basic necessities to children who can't afford them.
The process is very simple:
1) Youth Villages identifies those children who are in the greatest need of basic items
2) A list of those items is sent by email to all those who participate in the program
3) Items are collected and given to the counselor which in turn is given to the child
Participation is open to individuals as well as companies. Donations are completely voluntary and the requests are typically infrequent.
