2018 was our most successful year yet!! Thank you to our donors and volunteers for making it possible to bring Holiday Gifts to 220 patients!
The Holiday Gifts include self-care/hygiene items, cozy socks, a fun activity, and a sweet treat. The youth also received stuffed animals to cuddle.
During the Holidays we get excited to buy gifts for our loved ones and look forward to what we might receive. During this time there are hundreds of patients on locked inpatient mental health units in crisis over the Holidays. Unfortunately because of their need for treatment they aren’t able to be home with friends or loved ones.
THIS IS OUR CHANCE TO HELP! We collect donations starting as early as August to create these Holiday Gifts for the patients in our local facilities. PLEASE help make 2019 event better!
We need Volunteers and Donations!
