Secret Santa 2023

Looking for a Way to Give Back This Holiday Season?

Secret Santa provides an opportunity for community members to purchase gifts for the people MRI serves who would not otherwise receive gifts during the holidays. Secret Santa brings so much joy to our group homes; it is truly one of the most impactful programs of the year.

There are two ways to get involved with this program. Santas can purchase gifts for a person served based on their wish list, or they can donate money to MRI, and we will shop for you! MRI asks that Santas buy a minimum of two presents and spend at least $50 per individual. To pick who you’d like to shop for, see the “Shopper Form” below. MRI will wrap all gifts and deliver them to persons served before Christmas so they can open them Christmas morning.

If you would like to support the Secret Santa Program but would prefer us to do your shopping for you, donate here and put “Secret Santa” in the comment section of the form.
