Community helps to provide 700 gifts to homeless youth

Medford, Ore. — Hundreds of homeless kids will have something special to unwrap this weekend thanks to an incredible outpouring of community support.

Each year businesses, churches, schools and community members partner with the Maslow Project to provide holiday gifts to kids in need. They are generally able to provide about 200, but this year, they received over 700.

“They see all of their friends preparing for the holidays and now they can do that too,” Serina Quast says.

Jorge Zamarripa says the gifts vary from wants, to needs.

“Socks and underwear and things that you would think are just normal things that you would have every day as well as wants like Frozen toys or a skateboard or a computer for college.”

Families will start picking up gifts Tuesday.
