Love was definitely in the air at the Together We Rise office on Tuesday, February 12, 2013. With the anticipation of Valentine’s Day, Together We Rise’s amazing volunteers wanted to make sure the local foster youth were feeling the love.
So we packed the office filled with candy, paper hearts, ribbon, and glitter to make over 300 Valentine’s Day cards for local foster youth. Over 25 volunteers worked for hours to make sure no local foster youth would be without a Valentine this year.
It was a fun time with awesome people who took time out of their busy schedule to make something sweet for someone’s life that might taste a little bitter. It doesn’t take much to turn someone’s frown upside down with a simple gesture such as a Valentine. These cards are just a simple way Together We Rise can tell the local foster youth that their in our hearts and on our minds.
We’ve received so much feedback from our wonderful volunteers about doing more to help so we are working on having monthly volunteer days. These days will allow our volunteers to come into our office for a few hours and help us on our next project. Every little bit helps so come join us, bring a friend, co-worker, daughter, son, or just yourself, and create something that makes this world a little more awesome.
