#GivingTuesday is a movement to celebrate and provide incentives to give—the 2015 iteration will be held on December 1, 2015. This effort harnesses the collective power of a unique blend of partners—nonprofits, businesses and corporations as well as families and individuals—to transform how people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season. #GivingTuesday inspires people to take collaborative action to improve their local communities, give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they celebrate and help create a better world. #GivingTuesday harnesses the power of social media to create a global moment dedicated to giving around the world.
On Tuesday, December 1st, we hope you will join The MHASWNJ on #GivingTuesday to help us raise funds to provide more hours in the community to youth and adults in behavioral health facilities through Assisted Pet Therapy and provide activities for people isolated by their mental illness. DONATE NOW.
Our Assisted Pet Therapy program currently provides services to youth living in residential treatment facilities and to adults in psychiatric inpatient units of the hospital. With increased funds, we can offer additional hours with our service dogs to those most in need of the services.
Help those isolated by their mental illness. Through our Gathering, POST, and Self-Help Center programs, we provide social and recreational activities for hundreds each year through dances, shopping trips, movie outings, concerts, gym classes, bingo, holiday gatherings, and much more. Additional funding for these activities means The MHASWNJ can offer more activities to more people and help them feel more a part of their communities.
