50th Anniversary of MHA Westchester’s Operation Holiday Joy
“I was amazed when I received the gifts I asked for! It was the best holiday I’ve had in a long long time. I will never forget it.” –Note from an MHA Holiday Joy recipient
Join MHA Westchester to make the holidays brighter for individuals, children and their families who would not receive—or be able to purchase—gifts if it weren’t for Operation Holiday Joy. For 50 years, MHA has helped its neediest by gathering their personal wish lists, matching them to donors, and delivering the new clothing, toys, food and household items in time for the holidays. It’s a tradition that brings joy to both receiver and giver.
There are many ways to help. You can sponsor an individual or family and purchase items from their wish list; make a financial contribution and have MHA staff do the shopping; purchase food, clothing, household items or toys that MHA will match to a child or family; or donate store gift cards. MHA’s holiday gift drive is a great opportunity for groups – schools, churches, synagogues, a department at work—to collectively shop to bring cheer to others.
