TAG Teen Holiday Gift Drive

      No Comments on TAG Teen Holiday Gift Drive


The primary goals of TAG’s Teen Gift Drive are as follows:

1. To provide gifts over the holiday season for teens who:
Come from low-income homes
Live with foster families
Are staying in shelters or are homeless
Have been orphaned
Have been abused/neglected
2. To establish a network of organizations whom we can assist to ensure that families with teens who struggle through the holiday season receive gifts.
3. To ensure that items donated for teenagers are distributed through the proper channels. Items are donated by companies, businesses, or individuals and passed on to foster or low-income families with teenagers and /or organizations that have teens in their programs.
4. To promote public awareness of the challenges these teens face and how we all can help them.
