Christmas "PROJECT CHEER" - runs from December 1st thru December 31st

Chattahoochee Florida State Hospital XMAS party will be held on December 1st. Sit with 2 Santa's; large sheets cakes, trays of cookies, oranges, presents and personal care bags for 400 were handed out. Music and dancing. Everyone has a wonderful time. Presents, cake, cookies, oranges and personal Care bags are also prepared and given out to the Bridgeway , West Florida Community Care Center  and COPE center, and homeless Christmas party in our counties, throughout December.

Think of all  the people in need who suffer with, and are affected by, mental illness.  Invisible and forgotten, seven hundred children, adults, and veterans spend the holidays in group homes, hospitals, and sadly, on our streets.  Christmas Project Cheer  brings hope, treatment services, and the dream of Christmas to each of them – and you can help.

With your support, Project Cheer purchases new winter shirts, personal hygiene items, and medications for our area residents suffering from psychiatric disabilities.  All too often, it is the only Christmas gift they will receive.

            Your gift  is essential, to help a brain injured veteran, assist an adult with disabilities, or provide a thoughtful remembrance to a hospitalized teen.  No matter the amount of your donation, whether your gift is $25 or $525, you can bring hope to those who need hope most of all.

You, and only you, can make a life changing difference.
