Glimmer of Hope Project

With almost 45% of Covid19 deaths occurring in nursing homes, isolation, loneliness, and fear is paramount in the almost 2.1 million people living in these facilities. The senior population is extremely vulnerable, both to the virus, and the mental health challenges that come from not being able to see their loved ones. We wanted to help uplift seniors in our community and help protect them during these uncertain times. This is why we fundraised to buy PPE and nursing home essentials and designed handmade cards to bring a smile to seniors' faces.
