Holiday Giving

Holiday Wish List

Our Holiday Wish List contains a wide range of items – from warm clothing to stocking stuffers and everything in between.

It also contains suggestions of places that youth really appreciate gift cards to. Gift cards are a popular item as these offer the youth the opportunity to shop for themselves, allowing them to be independent and gives them the ability to purchase an item that they have carefully selected.

We’ve partnered with Fundscrip and if you order gift cards through their program, Durham Youth Services will receive an additional donation from the retailer.  Here are more details about Fundscrip.


Virtual Coat and Boot Drive

When it’s cold outside, most of us reach into our closet for a warm winter coat. But that’s not the reality for everyone and when a youth arrives at the shelter, they often don’t have winter wear that’s appropriate for the cold and snow.

We launched our Virtual Coat and Boot Drive this year to help provide a warm coat and dry comfortable boots to youth that need them. Our goal is to raise $3000 this season to be able to outfit 20 youth with winter necessities. So please consider warming your heart by giving warmth to a young person who needs it!

Thank you for being a ‘Snow Angel’!
