None of us are likely to soon forget the uncertainty and fear that has marked the year 2020. But, for the individuals served by Open Sky, these difficult months have presented additional challenges. Many of those we support with mental health issues were already experiencing anxiety and the negative effects of social isolation well before the pandemic hit. Reliable internet access was out of financial reach for some – making virtual check-ins with family and friends difficult if not impossible – not to mention telehealth visits with clinicians. In a nutshell, COVID-19 has made the lives of those already struggling much, much more challenging. They’re feeling disconnected and very lonely.
We need your help to ensure that those we serve experience the hopefulness, warmth and sense of renewal that the holiday season should represent. With your help, we can make sure that all of the individuals we serve feel acknowledged and that no one is forgotten – especially those who won’t otherwise receive any gifts during the season. To accomplish this goal, we are looking for local businesses, friends and neighbors to consider organizing a gift card drive, making a financial donation, or adopting one of our programs for the holidays.
Here is the Donation Form about the different ways you can help.
Everyone deserves a moment of joy this holiday season and we hope that we can count on your support in making that happen.
