Unrestricted monetary gifts are of the greatest need at Holston Home and are the best way to make a difference in the lives of children. Your gift funds everything from the basic living needs of each child to the loving house staff who give the love, support and care that each child needs to meet their full potential.
Gift cards to major retailers such as: Walmart, Food City, Target, Staples, TSC, Co-op, clothing stores and many others are always needed for incoming residents. The majority of children arrive with very little or with nothing but the clothes they are wearing. One of the first things that Holston Home does is to make sure the clothing and personal items needed are met. It adds a level of dignity to what is sometimes a traumatic transition.
