MCHS Wish List

MCHS Holiday Giving 2020

The holidays are meant to be a joyous time filled with love, hope and cheer. For youth in our residential program, the holidays can be overwhelmingly emotional and a reminder that they’re away from their families. At MCHS, our donors and volunteers come together to provide our kiddos with gifts and experiences to brighten their holidays! Check out our list of ways you can make an impact this holiday season!
