Mental Health America in Wilson County is continuing its decades-long tradition of collecting items for nearly 1,000 Wilson County residents who live in facilities for the mentally ill, some of whom would not receive gifts otherwise.

Operation Santa Claus provides holiday gifts for residents who are able to leave their housing facilities and can use items such as hats, gloves and scarves and also for facility-bound residents who appreciate items such as socks, slippers, blankets and sweatshirts.

All residents can use simple, inexpensive items such as shampoo, conditioner, body wash, deodorant, books and puzzles.

All donated gifts should be new and unwrapped and delivered to the Mental Health America office at 509 West Nash St., Wilson (the United Way of Wilson building) by Wednesday, Dec. 18, between the hours of 10 a.m. and 5 p.m.

For more information, call MHA-Wilson at 252-243-2773 or email mhawilsonnc@gmail.com.

Mental Health America in Wilson County is a United Way of Wilson agency.
