Again this year we will again support the Navos Holiday Drive. Pick up a card at our November meeting/Town Hall and support Navos’ clients by donating a gift card in a value that is personal and meaningful to you. Cards from Target, grocery stores and VISA are requested. Bring the donation back to our December holiday party.
Navos’ Holiday Drive supports our Emergent Needs Fund. At Navos, 90% of the clients we serve are low-income or even homeless. In many cases, our clients do not have the means to meet their basic needs, so we help support them by collecting gift cards that they can use to purchase necessary items, such as diapers, hygiene items, clothes for a job interview, or food for a family that just had to move out of their home due to a domestic violence situation. This fund also helps support our clients by providing items necessary to reaching their treatment plan goals, as well as bus tickets so that clients can get to and from their scheduled appointments. The Emergent Needs Fund covers a wide range of needs, allowing us to help provide our clients whatever they may need to help them reach recovery, from rain ponchos for our homeless clients to weighted blankets to help soothe anxiety for the kids in our Youth Residential Treatment Program.
