We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, December 1, 2015, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.

Guess What?! Youth Village is taking part in this great movement!


​EXCERPT FROM AN ARTICLE IN NWF DAILY NEWSThis GivingTuesday movement we would like to raise money for a new security system for our program. This is VERY important especially with what has been going on these last few weeks in our little city of Fort Walton Beach. There has even been a shooting that was reported early October that was ONLY 1.5 miles from where we are located. One of the most important things to us at Youth Village is keeping our children safe.

With what has been going on in these recent events it is imperative that we take action by making Youth Village a much safer place for our children. 


​We are already in the works of getting a new commercial steel front door for our building. So now we need the extra funds for a security system. We need $2,000 for a new 8 camera security system. The faster we can get the money for this security system, the sooner we can provide a safer place for our children.​

ALL WE NEED IS 100 PEOPLE TO DONATE $20!!! Will you be one of the 100 to help keep our children safe?
