It's that time of year! Please join us in helping some of our youth and their families have a wonderful, wish-filled holiday! A little help at holiday time is a true gift to our client families. You can send a donation and DFYF volunteers will do the shopping. Or you can adopt one of our families and we will provide you with their "wish list".
