Each year Alexander Youth Network serves more than 8,700 children with, or at high risk of, serious emotional and behavioral problems. The children who come to Alexander are often in need of basic items such as toiletries, shoes and undergarments, to name just a few. Angel Network, our year-round in-kind donation drive, helps us ensure that each child has the clothing, supplies and personal items necessary to feel safe and secure as they heal.
During the holidays we have our largest annual in-kind donation collection. This wonderfully rewarding effort provides businesses, organizations, clubs and individuals the opportunity to make the season a little brighter for a child in need. Toys, games and books are often on the holiday wish lists from our kids, but we also request donations of necessities such as winter jackets, boots, and sweaters.
