2020 Giving From the Heart
At this time when the news is dominated by Coronavirus, we wanted to personally reach out and let you know that the health and safety of our supporters, volunteers, families, peers and staff are the top priorities of our organization. As so many of us are impacted by mental health, we know that our community is especially vulnerable during these isolating times and we have come to the difficult decision to cancel our 2020 Annual NAMI Luncheon. While we are extremely disappointed to miss seeing your faces in person, we know that this is the most responsible decision for your health and safety and the greater community.
While much of the world has stopped, our mission to support those and their loved ones with mental illness has not been placed on hold. A public health crisis like the coronavirus can cause uncertainty, stress, and anxiety for people of all ages. For those who are impacted by a mental illness, the coronavirus has exacerbated the challenges they already face. The social distancing and isolation necessary to stop the spread of the virus can also increase the feelings of loneliness and need for support that so many with a mental illness experience. At times like this, it is more important now than ever to ensure NAMI Palm Beach County’s life-saving services are available.
Since the outbreak, NAMI Palm Beach County has been open every day, providing and adapting those vital services to those in need in our community. Although the luncheon has been canceled, we are asking for you to help us continue our work by still making a donation this year to NAMI. Funds for mental health are needed now more than ever. Your gift can help us as we adjust and bolster our programs to the ever-changing circumstances due to COVID-19. While all of us are facing great challenges at this time, we hope that you will consider Giving From Your Heart.
