Donate this holiday season to youth who have aged out of the foster care system

Wednesday, October 27, 2021

Do you have room for one more on your Holiday list this year? The MODIFY Program with West Virginia University Center for Excellence in Disabilities (WVU CED) is accepting donations for Holiday gifts to be given to youth ages 17-23 years who have aged out of foster care and are navigating the holiday season.

These young people receive services through the MODIFY Program to help them with college and independent living skills, but many have limited or no family support and often do not receive any gifts for the Holidays.

You can help by donating gift cards in $10 denominations. These might include:

  • Gift cards to grocery stores
  • Gift cards to superstores or department stores
  • Gift cards to fast food restaurants
  • Gift cards to clothing stores

Cash donations by credit card to purchase the above items can be made online through the WVU Foundation by selecting the MODIFY Program Holiday Drive.

Donations will be accepted until November 19, 2021
