Brighten spirits by becoming a DePaul Holiday Helper

By on November 4, 2019

DePaul, a not-for-profit health and human service agency based in Gates, is seeking the community’s support for its annual Holiday Helpers Program. Individuals, businesses, schools and service and faith-based organizations can “adopt” clients from DePaul’s mental health residential programs who may not have family support during this meaningful time of year. 

Participants can select from items on a wish list or choose to donate generic gifts such as hats, gloves, personal care items, or socks for adults. Past client wishes have included items as simple as a piece of chocolate cake, boots, or basic articles of clothing. 

For over 20 years, generous members of the community have made the season special for those less fortunate by taking part in DePaul’s Holiday Helpers Program. DePaul serves some 5,000 people annually in programs that encompass mental health residential and support services, senior living residential services, addiction prevention and support programs, vocational programs, and affordable housing. 

For more information about the Holiday Helpers Program, contact Amy Cavalier at 426-8000, ext. 3102 or Tax-deductible financial contributions can be made by check and mailed to “DePaul Holiday Helpers Program,” 1931 Buffalo Road, Rochester, NY 14624, or made online on DePaul’s website at
