Put ‘Love in Action’ This Valentine’s Day
Valentine’s Day is about love. For some folks, they don’t have anyone bringing Valentine’s to their desk or door.
Love in Action, is working to replace the feeling of loneliness in those most forgotten, while empowering children, no matter of their race, gender or economic background, to serve others. The approach of Love in Action Project is to express the message of love through children’s artwork handmade “I Love You” cards and adult volunteers.
The organization has distributed more than 15,000 cards since its inception in 2010. This Valentine’s Day, it hopes to distribute 4,200 cards. The cards will be delivered to nursing home residents, Meals on Wheels recipients, homeless individuals and those facing challenges of transition in our city on Valentine’s Day.
Children from toddlers to teens, youth groups, child day cares, school groups and anyone else who would like to make a special card is welcome to join in the Love in Action Valentine’s Day Project.
Join in a family card-making event this Saturday, Feb. 8, from 10am-1pm at Michaels Arts and Craft Store Stonecrest, 7836 Rea Road.
Cards can also be made at home and mailed to 9716-B Rea Road #160, Charlotte, NC, 28277 by Feb. 12. And adult volunteers are needed to help distribute cards on Feb. 14.
As their logo says “Spreading Love and Kindness Today Is Only a Crayon Away.”
