Great for families, small groups or individuals of all ages

Here are ways you can support the youth without interacting with them – no age minimum:

Great for Families or Groups to Do Together

  • DELIVER GIFTS AND CARDS – Distribute locally to others-in-need the gifts and cards that the youth make for others-in-need every January, April, July, October and December.
  • DESSERT AND ENCOURAGEMENT – Write a note of encouragement and wrap up 2 or 3 store-bought cookies, brownies or other finger desserts.  We share these with all the youth after each Community Service Social

Collect for Youth’s Activities and Birthdays

  • DONATE ARTS & CRAFTS SUPPLIES – Between our art projects during and after school, sewing classes, and our Community Service Socials, we can put just about anything you have to good use.
  • DONATION STATION – Youth without parental support often arrive without appropriate clothing.  Learn about the needs here.
  • BOOKS for book clubs and the resident’s cottage (living quarters) libraries
  • BIRTHDAY BAGS – Many youth haven’t ever been honored on their special day.  Encourage a youth by helping them celebrate.  Details here
  • COLLECT PUZZLES – for the puzzle club.  Youth work together to complete puzzles then their ‘teamwork masterpieces’ are glued down and displayed all over campus.  Email for delivery or pick-up if your group or family would like to do a collection.
  • SCHOOL WISH LISTS – Purchase items that help teachers & staff to support the youth:
    • SCHOOL supplies for the youth
    • BOOKS for the school library
  • BIRTHDAY CAKE & CARDS – Provide a cake and card once a month or once a year for a child who would not otherwise receive one.
  • FUND RAISE – have your group raise funds to support the events and programs that support the youth.
