Secret Santa
YCS Secret Santa Holiday Drive

Calling all Secret Santas…!

While the holidays are a joyous and happy time for so many of us, they can be extremely difficult for children who are separated from their families. We need YOU – plus your friends, relatives and colleagues — to make the holiday season bright for the children in our care.

When you return the enclosed form, the YCS Foundation “elves” will send you a wish list with each child’s name and their three gift wishes.

Any questions regarding your wish lists — we would appreciate if you correspond via email —

Secret Santa Top 5 tips:

1- You only need to purchase 1 of the gift wishes. (We list 3 to ease the burden of those hard to find items)

2- The YCS children are asked to keep their request in the $40 range. This could be an opportunity for you to ask a friend or family member to chip in with you and work together to make a child’s holiday wish come true!

3- Most popular gift – gift cards! — While gift cards may seem like a “boring” gift they are the most sought after gift. They give our children the opportunity to shop, to choose and most importantly…. to be independent!

4- Put a Smile on a Child Face – movie and McDonald’s gift card drive! See enclosed write-up. A FUN WAY TO PARTICIPATE.

5- Gifts must be unwrapped. We ask that each gift be placed in a holiday gift bag with the child’s name and program. Be sure to attach the tags securely!

6- We are hoping to get the children’s wishes to you by the week of 11/25 — earlier if possible.

If possible, DROPPING gifts at the YCS Foundation is GREATLY appreciated!!!
