Christmas Teen Initiative

The Christmas season is drawing near and we are currently seeking sponsors for TASC’s Christmas Teen Initiative. Last year, this program was able to assist almost 100 youth with items they really needed (and a few special wishes)! It is our hope to pair each teen that applies with a community sponsor, and we anticipate an even larger number of applicants this year. We would love to enlist your help to make this happen! Please join us this year by supporting a teen!

How it works:

  • Teens referred to us by their school counselors or social workers will fill out applications for the program.
  • Teens will be chosen for participation by TASC staff based on financial need and open response questions.
  • Each sponsor will be paired with a teen (or many if you choose!) and supplied with a list of requested items. You will be notified with all pertinent information (gender, sizes, wishes, etc.).
  • Once sponsors complete the shopping for their teen(s), unwrapped gifts can be dropped off at TASC.
  • TASC will take care of getting the gifts to the students!

If you are able to participate this year, please contact Emily Gilbertson at or give us a call at (479)636-8272. We appreciate your effort in making a difference in the life of a teenager!
