Mission Statement

To spread a little love to our community - school children crafting Valentines, delivered to hospital/hospice patients and staff, and to others. "Made by hands - felt by hearts".


It's a simple project - we approach elementary and middle schools and ask their students to create Valentine's Day cards. We send them envelopes, the children insert their precious cards, and the cards are then picked up and distributed to hospitals, hospices, clients of Food and Friends (homebound), and others. For Valentines Day 2024, more than 30,000 children took their time to participate and smiled. Add to that the 30,000 smiles from people who received the Valentines, for some of whom this was their only card.

We have been lucky to receive lots of wonderful press coverage from the Washington Post, NBC, and from all over the world!

It just takes a few volunteers in a town or region to make this happen. Volunteers can be anyone! Students (besides being fun, it can fulfill volunteer requirements and look great on your resume), faith-groups, the Rotary, retirees (especially teachers who know how to reach other educators!).
