Lead a Holiday Gift Drive

Each holiday season, our staff works tirelessly to make the boys in our care feel special.  This
includes special celebrations on campus, as well as a  visit from Santa with a sleigh full of  toys.  It is a true highlight for our boys as many haven’t ever had a special Christmas.  Help our boys by collecting gift cards or donations that our staff can use to purchase special gifts for them and give them a holiday to remember.  We welcome gifts from $10-$10,000! (Come back and help our staff wrap them!)
