Flavor of the Day

Monthly Charity

Our community is important to us and through the years we have supported local charities and causes. In late 2009 we decided to take this even further and actively support a  specific charity each month. Gilles matches your donations dollar for dollar, and 100% of the monies we collect go to the charity. Due to the generous contributions from our wonderful and caring customers and those from Gilles's, this program has been a terrific success. Thank you for helping us give back to those in need in our community!

If you have a suggestion for a charity for us to highlight, please let us know by using this link. When choosing a charity we focus on those that help people directly and have administrative costs of 10% or less.

The Monthly Charity for December is Mental Health of America, Wisconsin. Find out more about their great work at mhawisconsin.org.

MHA promotes the rights and well being of people with a mental illness. We are dedicated to improving the mental health of all individuals through advocacy, education and service. Our message is simple: Good mental health is fundamental to the health and well-being of every person and of the nation as a whole.

We want all people to understand how to protect and improve their mental health and know when to seek help for themselves or someone close to them. Mental Health America of Wisconsin (MHA) is an affiliate of the nation’s leading community-based non-profit dedicated to helping all Americans achieve wellness by living mentally healthier lives. Our work is driven by our commitment to promote mental health as a critical part of overall wellness, including:

• Prevention services for all

• Early identification and intervention for those at risk

• Integrated care and treatment for those who need it

• Recovery as the goal

Mental Health America of Wisconsin (MHA) is celebrating over 90 years of service to the Milwaukee-area community and the State of Wisconsin.

MHA serves individuals, schools, workplaces, senior centers, support groups and community organizations in Milwaukee County and throughout Wisconsin by promoting the rights and well being of people with mental disorders. MHA is strongly committed to ensuring that quality service reaches minority, low-income, women, children and elderly communities.

The people we serve range from those who are mentally healthy, such as those attending workplace presentations and training, to those who are struggling to recover from a serious mental disorder, such as parents in the family programs. We serve a broad range of socioeconomic backgrounds and cultures, family types and age groups.

MHA serves on several mental health committees, including the Governor's Council on Mental Health, Wisconsin United for Mental Health, and the MHA Council of Wisconsin. We also are involved in several statewide initiatives such as the Prevention/Early Intervention in Mental Health Initiative which seeks to intervene earlier with persons at risk of mental illness or suicide.

MHA is dedicated to improving the mental health of all individuals and our community as a whole through advocacy, education and service. Innovative programs are the benchmark of MHA's success. In order to meet the ever-changing needs of the community, MHA continually evaluates its programs while remaining true to our mission.

Essentially, we are an organization that provides information about mental health and mental illness to individuals, professional organizations and the community.
