Oftentimes during the holidays, teenagers get overlooked. Many organizations hold gift drives, but these drives are typically aimed at younger kids. As a result, very little attention is put on older kids and what they need for Christmas.
For our shop’s Thanksgiving special, we offer you a choice: get $15 off a repair or service, or donate that $15 to Teen Christmas, a charity that provides clothing to teenagers in need.
Please visit our website for our special – you can help brighten up Christmas morning for our Amarillo teens!
And if you would like more information about Teen Christmas or wish to donate, please visit the Amarillo Teen Christmas website. You can also read the Teen Christmas mission below by DJ Stubben, owner of Welcome Pardner!, a marketing company based in Amarillo. DJ Stubben created Teen Christmas in 2006, inspired by her own experiences growing up in a household where her mother passed away in her teen years and she felt what it was like to be overlooked at Christmas.
You can see for yourself how Teen Christmas has given hope to the teenagers of Amarillo on Teen Christmas’ Media page.
Have a wonderful holiday season!

Here is DJ’s Teen Christmas mission:
This Christmas you can make a difference in a teenager’s life by joining us in sponsoring a teen for our 8th annual Teen Christmas. Right now in Amarillo there are hundreds of teenagers in need. Thankfully, this Christmas, YOU can make a difference. There are many great organizations helping those in need and I encourage you to continue to support them. However, many of these programs have a gap for children between the ages of 13-18–our teenagers. This is where Teen Christmas steps in.
Teen Christmas was established in 2006 to provide clothing and/or shoes for our needy teenagers during the Christmas Season. Last year we were able to provide clothing and shoes from Walmart for over 400 teenagers. Unfortunately, this only accounted for about half of those in need.
This year we are hoping to increase sponsorship so we can help all of the teenagers. Your sponsorship will help us achieve this goal!
A $50 donation will sponsor a teenager and enable him or her to purchase needed clothing and/or shoes this Christmas. 100% of your donation will go to the teenager in form of a Teen Christmas gift certificate. Each teenager who qualifies will receive this gift certificate and redeem it at the Walmart located on the corner of Coulter & 45th, We invite you join us during this time to see how your generous donation has touched the life of an Amarillo teenager.
Please help us make a difference in a teenager’s life by being a needed sponsor this Christmas Season.
You may send your donations payable to:

Thank you for your sponsorship and have a Merry Christmas!
