Giving Day May 17 Mariposa Center

We’re only a few days away from Imagining Mental Wellness: A Giving Day to Invest in Mental Health in OC!

Mariposa Center, a non-profit mental health and substance abuse treatment facility in the city of Orange, is excited to participate in this county-wide effort to give back and restore health and hope in our underserved communities. Also, two generous donors have agreed to match Mariposa Center’s Giving Day fundraising total up to $17,500, which means you can feel twice as good about the amount you contribute! 

In this blog post, we will provide information on how you can contribute and support this important cause.

What is Imagining Mental Wellness’s Giving Day?

Imagining Mental Wellness is an initiative supporting non-profits that provide mental health services in Orange County. 

Eighteen local non-profits, including Mariposa Center, hope to bring in a total of $350,000 to maintain and enhance vital services for underserved individuals and families that wouldn’t have access to these resources otherwise.

Why is Giving Day So Important for Orange County?

It’s hard to overstate how important these mental health services are for Orange County residents and our community as a whole. 

Your support for these programs and organizations can have a transformative impact on someone’s life. Your gift, no matter how big or small, can make a difference. In simple terms, your gift can help us save lives.
