DYS Holiday Giveaway Campaign Underway

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 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 Giveaway campaign. DYS has reached capacity for family registration at this time. However anyone who would like to donate an unwrapped new and unused toy may do so at DYS which is located at 1608 7th Avenue North, Birmingham, AL 35203 or at any  America’s First Federal Credit Union branch.
