In Nicole Briskie’s role as a behavioral specialist, she provides daily support and compassion to patients at Rogers. However, taking on the role of an angel was certainly new for her – and much appreciated by Rogers Behavioral Health Foundation! This holiday season, after seeing a display card that promoted gift drives that provide toys and games to children and adolescents at Rogers, she decided to recruit her friends and family to donate.
With permission, she posted her Angel Fund drive on social media where her circle of friends and relatives joined her in giving generously, collecting $250 worth of items. Art kits, board games, cozy socks, stuffed animals, and even Magic Sand were delivered in early December and will be enjoyed by youngsters and teens this holiday, thanks to her efforts.
Thank you, Nicole, for going above and beyond!
You can help make better days possible for someone struggling with a mental health or addiction challenge by making a year-end donation to Rogers Behavioral Health Foundation. Give to the area of greatest need, make your gift in honor or memory of a friend or loved one, or designate your funds to one of the Foundation’s initiatives closest to your heart. Your gift saves lives!
May is Mental Health Month! A “Give for a Better Day” coping skills drive held in conjunction with your business, school or civic organization is an excellent way to help patients at Rogers Behavioral Health fill their emotional toolkits with small, but effective, therapeutic items.
