Christmas is almost here, and the Salvation Army and the Mental Health Foundation of Northern California (MHFCN) are hoping that your gift will help some people in need.
As of Wednesday, the Salvationary Fund of Northern CA has given more than 1.5 million packages to families affected by mental illness.
“We have received an incredible outpouring of support from across the country and beyond,” said MHFCN President and CEO Linda Smith.
“The generosity of our fellow members and partners has been astounding, and I am proud of our community and its incredible generosity.”
The Salvationary has been using its donations to give Christmas gifts, and it is encouraging people to share their thoughts and experiences with MHFCP to help spread the word.
“We’ve been hearing so much feedback on social media from people about how they want to help others, how they’re having a hard time financially, how much they’ve sacrificed and so on,” Smith said.
“We’re really happy to hear people’s stories and want to do more to help them.”
MHFCP is asking for donations in the form of items such as food and clothing, toys, toys for kids, and Christmas gifts for people with mental illness to distribute to people affected by the illness.
The Salvation Army’s gift program is available to the public.
