Naples, Fl (November 19, 2021). Youth Haven, Inc. is excited to announce its 2021 holiday opportunities.

Youth Haven, located in Naples, Florida, is Southwest Florida’s only emergency and residential shelter for boys and girls ages 10 – 19 who have been removed from their homes due to abuse, neglect, or are experiencing homelessness. Below are three ways you or your place of employment/organization can help ensure the children & teens that call Youth Haven home have the holiday season they deserve!

HOST A HOLIDAY DONATION DRIVE – Host a Holiday Donation Drive at your business or organization. You will receive an assortment of gift tags with a requested gift listed on the tag that your team can collect.

PURCHASE AN ITEM FROM OUR WISH LIST – Our children and teens provided us with their holiday wishes, and we need help purchasing the items. On the Wish List, you’ll see a variety of requests for toys, electronics, and gift cards. An Amazon wish list is also available at

DONATE SUPPLIES – Donations of wrapping paper, bows, scissors, and tape are greatly appreciated. We’re also in need of all types of batteries so that the kids can play with their new toys on Christmas day!

GIFT CRITERIA: Please note that we can only accept NEW, UNUSED AND UNWRAPPED gifts. We also cannot accept “scary/violent” donations.

DROP-OFF DETAILS: Please contact us at the contact info listed below to make arrangements for your gift delivery. The cut-off date for the gift drive is Friday, December 17, 2021.

“Youth Haven is grateful for the community’s support in ensuring our children and teens have a wonderful holiday season,” said Linda Goldfield, Executive Director. “We couldn’t do this without our amazing community partners!”
