DePaul, a nonprofit health and human service agency based in Gates, needs the community’s support for its annual Holiday Helpers program.
Individuals, businesses, schools, and service and faith-based organizations can “adopt” clients from DePaul’s mental health residential programs that may not have family support during this time of year.
Participants can select from items on a wish list, or choose to donate generic gifts such as hats, gloves, personal care items or socks for adults. Past client wishes included items as simple as a piece of chocolate cake, boots or basic articles of clothing.
DePaul serves 5,000 people annually in programs that encompass mental health residential and support services, senior living residential services, addiction prevention and support programs, vocational programs, and affordable housing.
Call (585) 426-8000, ext. 3102 or email for information.
Tax-deductible financial contributions can be made by check to DePaul Holiday Helpers Program, 1931 Buffalo Road, Rochester, New York, 14624. Visit to donate online.
