New to Open Baskets?

This short video shows how we have created thousands of gift baskets since 2005.

Please consider making a donation. For every $25 you give, a neighbor living with a mental illness receives a basket.

(Our baskets are typically valued between $50 and $75 each. The baskets are a mixture of in-kind donations, deep discounts on retail items, and purchased items. Our standard ‘cash cost’ per basket is $25.)

Open  Baskets gives hope, love, and gifts to our neighbors living with a mental illness. The effort started with 100 holiday gift baskets and is growing to 1,900 baskets for the 2018 holiday season; the overall goal is to reach all 6,000+ neighbors served by Mental Health Resources (MHR) at least once a year.

Words of Thanks

We (MHR’s Dakota staff) are in awe of your consistent support and kindness toward the client’s we serve and in turn our staff. The baskets are beautiful and fun, and I can guarantee they will be well received. We are going to get started delivering them right away so even today there will be people in our community feeling the warmth of your shared sprit.

As service providers who day-in and day-out see the pain and destruction that mental illness and poverty takes on people it is rejuvenating to see how a group of people with a commitment to a kind and supportive gesture can make a difference. Thank you for your hard work and gifts.
