AIR: Attitudes In Reverse

Accepting donations on the porch 10am – 3pm

Evening Gathering 7pm-9pm

Warm AIR 4 Winter

Each year, AIR collects the following items for local psychiatric hospitals where 70% of patients do not receive any visitors aside from Christmas Eve and Christmas Day when AIR volunteers  — both human and canine — deliver these donated items to help the patients feel warm and valued.We originally collected only gloves,socks (including fun ones) and beanie style hats. Then, we expanded it as we realized more needs of people at the hospitals and other organizations, such as Womanspace: deodorant and body wash; men’s, women’s and children’s clothing. Playing cards would also be appreciated.

Please note items should be new and unwrapped. 
With gratitude for your kindness and generosity.   *please share this page or download the PDF
ABOUT AIR: 
Attitudes In Reverse® (AIR®) was established by Tricia, Kurt and Katelyn Baker of Plainsboro, NJ, in 2010, soon after their son/brother Kenny died by suicide following a long battle against severe depression and anxiety. Their mission is to save lives by educating students about mental health, related disorders and suicide prevention. Since January 2011, they have presented to more than 150,000 students in elementary, middle and high schools and colleges in New Jersey, New York, Vermont, Missouri, Texas and Arizona. AIR also offers Youth Mental Health First Aid instruction and includes the AIR Dogs: Paws for MindsSM program, bringing dogs into schools to help students de-stress and engage in the conversation about mental health. In addition, AIR trains and certifies Emotional Support Animals and offers a lunch-and-learn program for businesses. For more information about AIR, please visit www.air.ngo or call 609-945-3200.
