Join us for MHA’s 54th annual Operation Holiday Joy gift drive and spread cheer and kindness this winter!
Last year, with the help of friends like you, we delivered gifts to more than 450 men, women, children and teenagers we serve. For most, these are the only gifts they receive during the holidays.
Your gift is more than just a fun toy or a warm jacket - it is a message that says "I care about you, and you are a cherished member of our community."
