Birmingham’s Division of Youth Services Announces Holiday Giveaway Reservation Date

In This Section

The City of Birmingham Mayor’s Office Division of Youth Services (DYS) in partnership with CBS 42 and AmFirst Credit Union is pleased to announce this year’s Holiday Toy Giveaway. The act of giving is important throughout the year, but the act of giving peaks significantly during the holiday season. To help create happy holiday memories for hundreds of less fortunate Birmingham youth, DYS created the Youth First Holiday Toy Giveaway campaign. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, families will be required to reserve a time for virtual registration. If virtual registration is not an option, there will be limited slots for in-person registration.
