On Valentine’s Day, Women United of Greater Niagara partnered with the Niagara Falls Boys & Girls Club and the Health Association of Niagara County Inc. (HANCI) to share the love by bringing valentines and chocolate to seniors in Niagara Falls.
Led by president of the Boys & Girls Club of Niagara Falls and member of Women United, Rebecca Vincheski, youth at the club crafted hand-made valentines with construction paper, ribbons, markers and plenty of glitter. The students then attached customized chocolate bars donated by Women United of Greater Niagara to each card.
On Tuesday morning, the valentines were picked up from the club then delivered to participants of HANCI’s Complete Senior Care PACE Program. Executive Director Virginia McAuliffe said the program’s seniors admired their cards and shared with each other throughout their time in the day room.
