Holiday Needs

Be sure to keep checking back as we continue to update
this page throughout the holiday season!

NAMI Williamsburg – The NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) Williamsburg Chapter is hosting their Annual Holiday Dinner. They are asking for help to cover the cost of the dinner for people in our community who live with mental illness. They also provide small gifts to each person with mental illness who attends, delivered by a great Santa! The Holiday Dinner is sometimes the only opportunity some of their attendees have to share a meal with others during the holiday season, as some of the attendees come from Eastern State Hospital. This year’s dinner is at the Golden Corral in Williamsburg on December 5 at 6:30 pm. It is open to all. To learn more about the event, click here.
