Winter Gift Drive

Through your generous gift and those from our community, thousands of the children and adults served by the Mental Health Center of Denver will receive a special gift this year.  

Get Involved

Gifts of Joy supports the people we serve during a difficult time of year. We serve individuals across the lifespan in our everyday work, and we serve across the lifespan through the Gifts of Joy Winter Gift Drive. The Winter Gift Drive provides toys for the children we serve, gift cards for the teens and adults we serve, as well as gift bags for those in our residential treatment facilities.

This year the Gifts of Joy Winter Gift Drive will continue taking extra precautions for the health and safety of both our supporters as well as the people we serve. There are options to support us both online and in select stores. Help us spread joy this winter season and get involved with the Gifts of Joy Winter Gift Drive.
