Wish of a Lifetime’s #CupidCrew Movement
Will Deliver 150 Roses to our Elders on Valentine’s Day in Essex Junction, South Burlington, and Shelburne Media & Photo Opportunity, Feb 14th 1-5 pm
Essex Junction, VT, February 14th 2019 – Did you know that nearly 16 million seniors in the United States are isolated, living alone? For many of our elderly – whose spouses have passed away and social circles grow smaller, Valentine’s Day can be a particularly difficult and lonely time. Through the #CupidCrew movement, we’re changing that by sharing a rose and a conversation with elders in our communities.
In 2014, Colorado-based non-profit organization Wish of a Lifetime created #CupidCrew, a nationwide volunteer movement that delivers roses to the elderly on Valentine’s Day. Thanks to the generosity of our 2019 partner, Home Care Assistance of Greater Burlington, #CupidCrew will deliver 150 roses to this often forgotten population within The Residence at Shelburne Bay (Shelburne VT) and The Residence at Quarry Hill (South Burlington VT).
Anyone who cannot make it to the event can donate $1 to the movement through Wish of a Lifetime’s website or Facebook fundraiser on or before February 14, 2019. 100% of your donation contributes to the fight against senior isolation. Volunteers can go to the “Wish of a Lifetime’s #CupidCrew” Facebook page, e-mail the #CupidCrew team at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (303) 954 9144 ext. 210 for more information.
MEDIA OPPORTUNITY: For members of the media interested in sharing the stories of our elders, Home Care Assistance of Greater Burlington in conjunction with The Residence at Shelburne Bay and The Residence at Quarry Hill invites you to attend their Valentine’s Day event.
