Youth Villages on quest to find 'Holiday Heroes' for children receiving care in Middle Tennessee


Youth Villages is seeking Holiday Heroes for more than 2,000 children who are receiving care in Middle Tennessee.

A Holiday Hero helps fulfill the holiday wish list for a child in or has aged out of foster care, 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, civic groups or church congregations) may request a child's wish list by visiting 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 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

For more information, please contact Lyndsay Wilkinson at Youth Villages at (615) 250-7323 or at Youth Villages
