In order to have items arrive in time for the holiday party, please deliver all donations (no wrapping please) by December 12.

We are also looking for an individual, group, or company to sponsor a catered lunch for our holiday party. Please contact us if you are interested in this type of donation!

One of our biggest on-going needs is transportation. We would love to accept donations of bus passes, VISA gift cards, or even a car(!) that could be given to a TPP youth who needs it for his or her continued success.

To help the young people enrolled in The Possibilities Project everyday, consider making a monthly gift. This would go towards the expenses of keeping the program running.  A small monthly gift can have a long term impact! You can set this up automatically online with the Donate Now button, or call Marny Hackley at 804-353-0191 ext. 180
