Queermas

queermas bannerEvery holiday season, the one•n•ten youth and staff celebrate Queermas!

one•n•ten youth range in age from 14-24, and nearly half of the youth in our programs are homeless, or otherwise disenfranchised, and they all are in need of a great holiday through community supporters like you.  Our Youth Center is open each year on Christmas Day, where the youth receive personalized gifts under the tree that are made possible by the community.

In an effort to include the community at large in our gift-collection efforts, small Adopt-A-Diva Christmas trees will be displayed at various bars, restaurants, churches, and coffee shops around the Valley. Patrons may select a tag off the tree, which lists a youth’s name and the items they have put on their “Holiday Wish List” that the one•n•ten staff collects.

Individuals wishing to Adopt-A-Diva, can then visit one of the Tree locations, and select a Wish tag.

We would like to have all gifts turned in between the hours of 10AM-4PM Monday-Friday by Friday, December 20th at the one•n•ten Admin Offices located at 2700 N. 3rd St. Suite #2011 Phoenix, AZ 85004.
(Note: this location is DIFFERENT than the Youth Center and we’d like to have items dropped off here to prevent peeking!)  
Donations may be brought in wrapped or unwrapped.
