Duneland YMCA CEO
Dave Kasarda is collecting hand-made paper hearts, with the goal of
gathering over 500, to present to those on the front lines of the COVID-19
"These hearts will
be delivered to hospital staff, first responders and those on the front
lines of helping us survive this pandemic," Kasarda said.
The hearts can be
any size (8.5 x 11 is ideal) and need to contain a positive message,
thanking those who are working so hard to keep us safe or providing needed
encouragement. This can be a great project for children who are looking for
something to do. Once the hearts are done, please bag them and place them in
the drop box in front of the doors at the Duneland YMCA.
All Hearts need to
be at the Y by 10:30 a.m., on Wednesday, April 8.
If you are unable
to get to the Y, contact Kasarda via email, email@example.com, and a
safe pickup will be arranged.
making hearts and thanking those who are risking their lives for us. Let's
all come together on this project, and let these folks know how much we
appreciate what they're doing for us," he said. "Please share this message
with everyone you know!"
