This program, established in 2004, provides Christmas gifts to selected public housing and Housing Choice Voucher children who may otherwise go without them. It has provided gifts to over 1200 children between 0 to 12 years of age.

    Last year, because of your generosity, we collected 83 gift cards for 15 families, including 67 children.

    At Johns Hopkins Medicine, we celebrate the diversity that strengthens us. It helps us push boundaries of discovery, transform health care, advance medical education and create hope for humanity. In November, we focus on the first inhabitants of the land; our brave military, which fights for our freedom every day; and the victims of violence against transgender people.

    National Native American Heritage Month is a time to acknowledge the important contributions of our native people, American Indians and Alaska Natives. Native American Heritage Month started in 1976 as Native American Awareness Week. Every year since 1994, the United States president has made a proclamation encouraging Americans to use November to learn more about Native American culture. To assist you in gaining a deeper understanding of our native people, we are pleased to release this heritage guide, which will help you recognize and commemorate this observance. View the National Native American Heritage Month events happening across Johns Hopkins Medicine over the next month.
