The Mighty’s Holiday Card Drive
The holidays are not always easy to get through, and for those who spend them away from their loved ones taking care of their mental health, it can be quite difficult. This year, help The Mighty spread some love and support by sending cards to those receiving psychiatric care over the holidays. They’re partnering with McLean Hospital in Belmont, Massachusetts, to deliver cards to children and adults with mental illnesses. All cards must be postmarked by December 15 and will be delivered to McLean Hospital by December 24. For more information, please click here.

New and lightly-used, unwrapped toys can be brought to BNHC’s pediatric department, located on the third floor of their 63 Main Street site. Please join us in bringing a smile to a child’s face this holiday season! For more information, visit the BNHC website.
