Give hope this holiday season!

One of the most delightful activities of the holiday season is seeing the wonder in a child’s eyes. Now imagine multiplying that feeling a thousand-fold. This holiday season, give just one gift to Youth In Need—a book, a doll, a new baseball glove—and you’ll be a part of the season of giving for all of our programs.

By participating in the holiday drive, you will help children, teens and families reach developmental goals, enjoy safe and positive recreation, learn new life skills and find the support they need to build positive futures.

Please consider the following options to fulfill wishes this holiday season:

  • Adopt a Youth In Need program and fulfill the needs of a classroom, group home or therapeutic program.
  • Collect items from the general Holiday Wish List to be distributed where needed.
  • Shop from the Amazon charity wish list and have your donation shipped directly to Youth In Need.
  • Use the form below to make a cash donation to support the 2022 Holiday Drive.

We encourage our holiday supporters to adopt a Youth In Need program and receive a specific wish list to help fulfill. The items you donate will impact the lives and learning of children for years to come. Regardless of your choice, you, your business or organization will enhance the holiday season for the thousands of children and families Youth In Need serves.

Deliver donations to 1815 Boone’s Lick Road in St. Charles or arrange for pick up by December 12, 2022. Thank you for your generosity and believing in the potential of the children, teens and families we serve.

For more information or to participate in the holiday drive, contact Emily Birgenheier, Development Services Manager.
