PROJECT CHEER!

For over 30 years, the Mental Health Association of Central Florida, Inc. (MHACF), has provided “care packages” for over 250 individuals that are hospitalized in psychiatric facilities over the holidays through our “Project Cheer”.  These care packages typically contain travel-sized toiletries, socks, a deck of playing cards or other activity and a handmade “cheer” card.  This year we will be collaborating to distribute to patients that are hospitalized at ASPIRE Health Partners and AdventHealth Center for Behavioral Health.  Please help us meet our goal by donating by December 18, 2020.

Items needed:

  • 380 white cozy socks (adult sized) 
  • 380 TRAVEL SIZE shampoo
