Each year BridgeHead participates in Youth Villages Back to School Drive and Holiday Heroes programs in the US. Founded in Memphis, Tennessee in 1986, Youth Villages is a leading national non-profit dedicated to providing the most effective local solutions to help emotionally and behaviourally troubled children and their families live successfully. Their core values center in putting the health and well-being of the children first.
The Holiday Heroes Program was started to fulfill the holiday wishes of the family and children served by the Youth Villages Program. This year they were able to provide presents to more than 300 children whose families could not afford to purchase holiday gifts.
The Back to School Drive is held in late July and is aimed at making sure children have all the supplies necessary to be successful in school. The families that Youth Villages support have barely enough money to cover basic living expenses so this relieves the pressure of having to purchase school supplies.
Over the last 4 years BridgeHead and its employees along with company matching, have donated more than $5,000. To learn how you can donate visit the Youth Villages website.
