The Valentines Project

A few years ago, we began collecting boxes of Valentines for students at our local elementary school who could not afford to share this simple gift of love and friendship with their classmates. Last year, through the generosity of Foundation donors, we were able to provide over 400 boxes of Valentines to three different Title 1 schools here in Jefferson County. This year we hope to expand our project and also give students packages full of craft material so that they can create and distribute their own personal Valentines. It has been wonderful to see how something so simple has so much impact.
