2020 has brought more challenges than any of us would have ever anticipated. Now more than ever we must support each other—we must pour into our communities and stand by those in need. Every winter, each employee selects a local charity to support by donating a 212 Christmas bonus. May we all cultivate deeper levels of generosity, gratitude, and selflessness this holiday season.
“I’ve been passionate about breaking down the stigma associated with counseling and therapy for most of my (admittedly short) adult life,” shares Senior Content & Social Media Specialist Bailey Gerber. “Counselors can take an unbiased look at your circumstances and offer insight—and that’s valuable for everyone, which is why normalizing counseling is so important to me.”
That’s why Bailey is supporting Turning Point Counseling Center with her 2020 donation, helping the North Webster charity continue to provide accessible, affordable mental health services. Turning Point doesn’t want finances to inhibit people from finding restoration, so they offer an income-based, sliding-scale fee system. It means that anyone can come to them—regardless of employment status, insurance coverage, or economic background.
“I’ve benefited directly from their services, and so have tons of people I love deeply,” says Bailey. “I’m so grateful for the work they do, and I’m even more grateful to have the opportunity to support them through 212 Gives Back.”
