Organize a Holiday Gift Drive for patients at Rogers

Each year, individuals, organizations, retailers, and corporations hold clothing or toy drives for children served by a wide variety of non-profits. Many people do not realize the extent of patients at Rogers whose severity of syptoms will make it unlikely that they will return home in time for the holidays, or whose family resources will make it prohibitive to participate in the gift-giving season.

Your generous donation of gifts helps make the journey to recovery easier for patients at Rogers
Behavioral Health. Donations of new, unused items or monetary gifts go a long way in making the overall treatment experience more comfortable, reducing anxiety, and brightening the holiday season for patients and families. Our patients have special requirements, so please consider the following when selecting your gifts:
