Mental Health Association of Central Florida

Project Cheer

Each year we collect donations and spend a day creating care packages for those spending the holidays in our local Baker Act Receiving Facilities. The Holidays can be difficult when they’re spent in a hospital, we aim to bring a little joy to those patients. We provided care packages to the children and adult Baker Act units at Aspire Health Partners and the Baker Act unit at the Lake None VA, this year.

We have sent the care packages to the hospitals! Thank you for everyone’s donations and help this year!
