‘Love in Action’ works to send 5,000 handmade Valentine’s Day cards to local nursing homes

One local organization is spreading the love this Valentine’s Day by sending over 5,000 homemade cards to local nursing homes.

‘Love in Action’, founded by Tawanda Robbins, has collected thousands of V-Day cards from families, businesses, daycares and more in hopes of brightening the day of a population who -in many ways- is set apart due to the covid-19 pandemic.

“We want to create cards for those experiencing isolation, lonely, going through a difficult time,” said Robbins. “There are those who haven’t heard ‘I love you’, ‘I miss you’, ‘I’m thinking of you, ‘You got this’, ‘Hang in there’, ‘You’re not alone.’ All of those little messages that you or I might take for granted.”

This is the tenth year Love in Action has done this outreach, collecting countless cards from volunteers over past decade.
