We at Mental Health America in Montgomery (MHA-M) are hosting our 69th Annual Operation Santa Claus on Friday, December 18, 2020. We need your help to ensure Christmas gifts, Christmas cheer, and a special visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus to members of our Friendship Club and residents of the Montgomery Area Mental Health Authority group homes in the Tri County area. Our need is to help adults with mental illness, as many of these individuals have no family to support them. Your monetary gift will provide for not only this season's Operation Santa Claus but also to maintain our programs in support of our participants working towards recovery.
Past gifts have blessed their lives and have been so appreciated. We hope Operation Santa Claus will be part of your holiday giving.
Gifts may be received in a variety of ways--by Paypal, Facebook, online, or by filling out a form to pay by check or credit card through the mail.
Jennifer Crumpton, President, Board of Directors
Cynthia Bisbee, Ph.D., Executive Director, MHA-M

Thank you so much for all those who helped make 2019 OSC a great success! There was a lot of good food, fun, and fellowship with all the consumers. The participants especially enjoyed receiving their Christmas presents, meeting Santa Claus and his family, and partaking in the Christmas dinner

Operation Santa Claus is a long-standing holiday project of Mental Health America in Montgomery. Started in 1952 by MHA volunteer Alice Kidd, the event is an annual gift drive to benefit individuals served by the mental health system. Organizers felt the project would be a worthwhile way to ensure gifts would be distributed to individuals who may not have family with whom to share the holidays.
In the River Region, Operation Santa Claus provides gifts for members of the Friendship and Open Door Clubs, Mental Health Authority group homes, day treatment and CHOICES’ programs, area foster homes, and residents of state mental health facilities. It takes everyone working together to make sure that those who have mental illness are not forgotten during the holidays.
