HELP US BY DONATING!
Operation Santa Claus — a holiday outreach program sponsored by The Mental Health Association in Forsyth County — is seeking individuals, civic groups, church groups, businesses and school/college groups to help make someone’s holiday season a little brighter this year by helping us sponsor local citizens who are mental-health consumers at local mental health facilities such as: Old Vineyard Behavioral Health, Forsyth Medical Center, Wake Forest Baptist Hospital and Brenner Children’s Hospital. We also serve clients in the Mental Health Court System, Stepping Up Program, and our Representative Payee Program. These are women, men, and children with mental health disorders who live in our own backyards in Forsyth and surrounding counties.
With your help, each of our neighbors can receive a gift this year. Please consider sponsoring a patient at a local mental health facility. Your generosity will help each person who finds themselves at the hospital this Christmas to know that they have not been forgotten. Each patient will receive items of clothing, toiletries, something fun to do and treats to eat.
Any donation for this outreach program is greatly appreciated to help individuals locally in our community. The Mental Health Association will deliver gift bags to help provide cheer and good will to patients during the week of December 23rd, 2019.
