Giving Tuesday gives Youth Villages 80 Holiday Heroes in Asheville

See a photo gallery from the event.

Youth Villages’ Holiday Heroes party helped find Holiday Heroes for 80 children and former foster youth helped by Youth Villages in the Asheville area.

The event was held on Giving Tuesday (Nov. 29, 2016) at Off the Wagon Dueling Piano Bar and informed guests about ways to brighten the holidays for children and young adults helped by Youth Villages for emotional or behavioral issues, or who need help making a successful transition into independent adulthood.

“We’re so grateful to our partners Off the Wagon and Buxton Hall Barbecue and that so many guests decided to become Holiday Heroes and picked a child’s wish list to fill. Holiday Heroes make such a difference in the lives of these kids. We’re excited, yet we know we still need additional Holiday Heroes.”
George Edmonds, Youth Villages Assistant Director

To fill the holiday wishes of every child and former foster youth helped by Youth Villages, the organization is looking for an additional 15 individuals, groups or families to become Holiday Heroes to cover those who will begin services during the month of December. Holiday Heroes either request a child’s wish list or make a donation to the Youth Villages Holiday Heroes Fund. To become a Holiday Hero to a North Carolina child, please visit our North Carolina Holiday Heroes page.
