Spark Joy! Sponsor Kids in the Orchard Place Holiday Drive


What was on your holiday wish list as a child? A toy train, or a doll, or a match box car? At Orchard Place, we care for, and about, each of the children and families we serve. We recognize the holiday season may mean more stress, not less. When a child experiences a mental health crisis, it impacts the whole family and may lead to financial distress as parents miss work to care for their child’s needs.

Now that you know the why behind the Orchard Place Holiday Drive, you may wonder how YOU can make their holiday wishes come true:

Shop for a Child: Sign up to fulfill a child’s wish list. Each list includes one need + two wants. The total cost to provide all three items averages $75.

Donate Cash and/or Gift Cards: Give at and type “Holiday Drive” in the designation area or mail a check payable to Orchard Place and/or gift cards in the enclosed envelope.

Want to spread even more joy? Team up with your family, friends, employer, church, or others to fulfill wish lists, Sponsor Stockings, Host a Holiday Party at Orchard Place Campus, or Host a Giving Tree.
