MEMPHIS, TENN. (Nov. 1, 2017) – Youth Villages is seeking Holiday Heroes for children in various    programs throughout several states, including Georgia, Indiana, Massachusetts, Mississippi, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Oregon and Tennessee.

A Holiday Hero helps fulfill the holiday wish list for a child who has experienced trauma or has a history of emotional or behavioral health issues. To become a Holiday Hero, individuals, families, or groups, such as businesses or church congregations, may request a child’s wish list by visiting and selecting the specific state. Holiday Heroes also have the option to donate or shop to fulfill youth holiday wishes.

A $100 donation will cover a child’s complete holiday wish list. However, Youth Villages is thankful for any donation amount. To donate to the Holiday Heroes fund, please visit
