Ninth Annual YES Boy's Holiday Party

Ninth Annual YES Boys’ Holiday Party

Saturday, 3:30PM-5:30PM, December 14, 2013


Who are the YES Boys?

-The YES (Youth Empowerment Services) Shelter is part of the Center for Family Services, and the Shelter houses 16 to 20 boys, ages 11 to 17.

-Some boys come into the shelter with only the clothes on their back.

-Some boys have never received a present in their lives.

What can YOU do to help?

-You and your Pack or Troop can collect Gift Cards and new items to be given as presents. Items such as socks, gloves, t-shirts, scarves, earmuffs, underclothes, stationery make wonderful gifts. Gifts like hooded sweat-shirts would be like a dream come true for these boys. Gift cards to Target or Walmart are needed when the boys go shopping, or can be used by the YES adult Staff to buy larger gifts for all the boys.

-New or used PS3, Wii and X Box 360 systems and games (not for mature audiences) would be shared among all the boys.

-New or used table games, e.g., pool table; air hockey table would be a welcome addition, which all the boys could share.

-If you wish, you and your unit can donate pizza or other foods for the Holiday Party, or cash/checks.

-Or use your keen scouting sense and imagination and come up with your own gift idea.

-You and/or your Troop are welcome to join us on December 14th to bring some Holiday joy to these boys. We also show and teach the boys some basic Scout skills, like knot-tying, First Aid, outdoor skills, etc. Your ideas are more than welcome!

-Tell your Scouts NOW of your plans to help the YES boys, so the Scouts and their families can begin collecting gifts before the Holiday rush!

Your donations, ideas, and list of those coming on December 14th can be sent to Joe Brennan, 110 Round Hill Road, Voorhees, NJ 08043.

Any questions? Please call Joe at 856-428-2645 or e-mail at jpbrenfsa@verizon.net.

Show your Scouting Spirit and help the YES Boys!
