Gift Bag Delivery Mon-Tues Nov 23-24

For more than 13 years we have partnered with fellow agencies to host the South County Mental Health Thanksgiving. This annual event has traditionally brought over 300 mental health participants and their families together to connect, celebrate, and enjoy a meal the day before Thanksgiving. Due to the pandemic and our concern for the health of our community, we instead provided home delivery of Thanksgiving Gift bags for 100 participants.
