Every year before the Holidays, young people request items that would make a difference

for them, and help them achieve their goals!

We add the gifts that young people request to our Amazon Wishlist, as well as handwritten on tags distributed to businesses, and coordinate with all of you.
 

You purchase the gifts and get them to us. We sort and match them, and deliver the gifts to the young people that requested them.
