TO MAKE A MEMORY THAT WILL LAST A LIFETIME
Much more than a gift bag
The holidays can be a difficult time of year for those we serve. Many people experiencing mental health issues live in isolation and may have little to no contact with family and friends.
Every one of our holiday gift packs are hand delivered during a personal visit or at one of our client holiday celebrations.
Special GiftsFrom warm winter jackets and boots, to toys for children, we create our gift bags to meet the unique interests and needs of those we serve.
Everyday EssentialsWe include items like warm socks, underwear, everyday essentials like health and hygiene products in our gift bags to provide comfort and to meet each person's needs.
Food ItemsBy providing healthy snacks, fresh and non-perishable food items, our gift bags help to alleviate food insecurity over the holidays.
A Message of HopeIn addition to special gifts, everyday essentials and food items, our gift bags include a beautiful hand-written holiday greeting card containing messages of hope and belonging.
