The Youth Advisory Board and Community Services staff worked together to create homemade valentines and assemble gift bags for 100 unsuspecting senior residents.
The bags were filled with chocolates, cookies, hot cocoa and an old-fashioned blank valentine and pen to encourage the lucky recipients to “pay-it-forward." The bags also contained masks and personalized notes written by Community Services staff describing “3 things we love about you."
Multiple recipients sent "Thank You" notes to the staff and Youth Board members, expressing their gratitude for what was a much-needed spirit lift for many.
