Each year the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Tennessee Valley identifies around 650 Club members that need assistance for the holidays. Each Club member selected has the opportunity to submit 4 gift wishes that they would like to receive for the holidays. It costs about $75-$100 to purchase all 4 wishes for a child. Volunteers come together each year to help us fulfill these wishes. Here’s how you can help:
1. Shop for a child(s) 4 wishes
2. Donate $73 – $100 per child for shoppers to purchase gifts
3. Identify groups to conduct Gift Drives to fill wishes.
