Donate to help Aspire Health Alliance provide mental health resources

BRAINTREE – Through the COVID-19 pandemic, national labor shortages and patient influx, the Aspire Health Alliance continues to provide mental health services to residents of the South Shore.

The money saved through The Patriot Ledger’s annual Lend a Hand vacation program has gone a long way toward helping Aspire customers, not just in the past year but in years past.

Aspire spokeswoman Janice Sullivan praised the generosity of Ledger readers in 2020 in particular when many stepped up to donate during a financially turbulent year. She said Aspire was able to distribute more than 600 gift cards to customers out of the money Lend a Hand sent to the agency.

“It’s something that sometimes subverts the basic necessities that people are asking for help,” Sullivan said.

In the past, she said, money received through Lend a Hand has helped clients who need clothes for job interviews, auto repair, or simple things like food.
