Description

Since 2010 we have worked to replace the feeling of loneliness for some people who may be forgotten on Valentine’s Day, while also empowering children to serve others.

 

Did you know?

 

As many as 60% of seniors who live in nursing homes do not receive outside visitors putting them at greater risk for abuse, neglect, and depression.

Isolated elders had a 59 % greater risk of mental and physical decline (heart disease, high blood pressure and even dementia)

43% of seniors in nursing homes report feeling lonely on a regular basis

72 % of Americans experience loneliness. 
 

We ask that you help us create 5,000 Valentine’s Day cards.

 

Here’s How 
Create a colorful treasured Valentine's Day card. The card may include poems and loving words. Your artwork will be delivered to Nursing Home residents, 'Meals on Wheels' recipients, homeless individuals, and those facing life transition in our city on Valentine's Day. 
Card Submission Deadline: Wednesday, February 12th
