  • 86 people are interested

Want to do something wonderful this Christmas? You can!!!!! Be a HOLIDAY HERO to a child who needs hope! Youth Villages serves the most vulnerable children in Middle Tennessee (over 5,000 a year). These children have experienced serious abuse and neglect and have never known what it is like to receive something for Christmas. You can be a light in their lives by simply signing up to be a Holiday Hero and giving them hope during this time. As a hero you will receive a specific child's wish list (ages newborn to 23), shop for their gifts and return them unwrapped to Youth Villages' Nashville office. This year Holiday Heroes will provide gifts for over 1000 children! All of the children are local Middle Tennessee kids who live well below the poverty line and really need our help! If you would like to be a Holiday Hero to a child in need, please contact me at (615)-250-7262 or greg.schott@youthvillages.org Thank you so much! Greg Schott
