Holiday Gift Drive 2020

About Gift Drive

Help ensure that every youth in our program has a special gift to open this holiday season. Each year, we collect gifts for youth. This year, Friends will pick out a special gift for the youth and deliver to their house with a card and fun activities for them to do virtually together.

What to buy

The gift tags that we provide offer great suggestions of what you can get for our youth. Suggestions are compiled by Friends based on the interests of their youth. When purchasing gifts, keep in mind that we serve youth ranging in age from 5 through 18 years old. We respectfully ask that you do not purchase gifts that depict guns or violence.

No need to wrap gifts! However, we do accept wrapping paper and accessories so that Friends and youth may wrap the gifts themselves.
