NAMI’s Holiday Gift Drive is a Big Success – Thanks Everyone
Despite so many people struggling financially due to the pandemic, people were incredibly generous in donating to NAMI’s Holiday Gift Drive. Items arrived with notes such as “In memory of our loved one taken by suicide” or an individual dropping off a bag full of warm socks sharing that they had been in an inpatient unit over the holidays and knew how hard it was. Thanks to the 32 volunteer drivers who delivered gifts to 48 facilities, ensuring that nearly 1,400 children and adults in an inpatient psychiatric unit or residential treatment facility in the metro area would be given a gift during the holidays. Thanks to everyone who supported the drive!
