Vinfen Holiday Appeal 2021 Website Banner Text


With the generous support of donors like you, Vinfen can provide gifts for the people we serve who do not have the family or personal means to make the holidays special.

The individuals we serve have shown great strength and resilience as they move forward and adapt to the changing times throughout this past year. For the nearly 7,000 people with mental health conditions, intellectual and developmental disabilities, brain injuries, and behavioral health challenges that we support each year, the obstacles and isolation exacerbated by COVID-19 have been immense. We continue to be amazed and inspired as so many overcome challenges head-on and work to reach their goals.

For most, the holiday season conjures feelings of happiness, togetherness, and peace. A time for family and friends, charity and goodwill, and hopeful anticipation of the new year. But for the people we serve, it can feel lonely, as many do not have the family or financial means to experience a joyful holiday season. 

We invite you to bring comfort and joy into the lives of the people Vinfen serves. Your support can make all the difference.
