NAMI Monterey County's Annual Holiday Giving Event - December 8th!

NAMI Monterey County will be hosting its annual Holiday Giving Event on Monday, December 8th, at the Monterey Youth Center.

Every year, NAMI Monterey County purchases items to be given to individuals who are homeless or living in assisted living services. These items are put into care "gift" packages, then distributed to the community. On December 8th, beginning at 6:00 PM, we will be assembling the gift packages.

This event is a fun time for all. It's an opportunity to come together, make new friends, have some snacks, and feel like part of the community as you help us assemble the gifts.

We hope to see you there!
