​​​​​​​​​​​​In all likelihood, you probably don't remember your first Christmas. After all, most of us experience our first holiday season as an infant. So for us, spending time with family, exchanging gifts and celebrating the season with special meals is something that we've grown up with our whole lives.

For a lot of Boys Town kids, Christmas is a very different experience. Growing up in broken homes in neighborhoods plagued by poverty, crime and substance abuse, the holidays were no different from any other time of the year. Because in December, just as in March or July, every day simply presented a struggle to survive.

So when kids come to Boys Town, along with the prospect of making new lives for themselves, many have the opportunity to experience their first real Christmas.

Check out the video below featuring one of our favorite holiday traditions at Boys Town, a magical drive-through Christmas!

Your generous gift today will give a child that most cherished of presents - the lifelong memory of a truly happy Christmas.
