#GivingTuesday

GT_logoToday is Giving Tuesday, and you can help Interim, Inc. make a difference in the lives of adults with serious mental illness TODAY.

Giving Tuesday is a movement to create a global day of giving back, a compassionate response to Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Interim is asking for your support during this 24-hour giving campaign. It’s a great way to make a difference right here in Monterey County.

Join us this year and make Giving Tuesday a new part of your family’s holiday tradition.

Donations made today, and throughout the holiday season, will be matched by 20% when you give through the Monterey Peninsula Foundation’s Charity Match to Interim, Inc.

Holiday Gift Drive

Buying presents for family and loved ones is a special part of the holiday season, especially for parents and children. Many of our clients have very few resources for gift giving, so one of the ways we support them is by purchasing $25 gift cards and distributing them in early December. This gives our clients the pride of being able to select their own gifts for their children. It may sound like a small thing, but it’s not! These personally selected gifts often times help residents re-connect and bond with their children during the holiday season.

This year we expect to purchase approximately 100 gift cards valued at $25. You can support our Holiday Gift Drive by clicking on Donate Now. Enter Holiday Gift Drive in the box that says: I want my donation to be dedicated.

Help us make the holidays a happy one for our clients and their children!
