Youth Villages Undergarment Drive

Dec 18, 2017

On October 27th, 2017, Stephanie Miller and her team volunteered at Youth Villages Field Day event here in Memphis, TN. During this event, we had the opportunity to participate and interact in various outdoor and indoor activities with the kids ages 10 and up to 18 years old. We were all touched by our experience that day and the kids had a great time with us. We learned so much about Youth Villages and the kids that we wanted to do more to help. We asked one of the staff members there what the kids are in need of the most and can we donate clothes, etc.
