Teen Volunteers Create Gifts for Samaritan Patients and FamiliesPosted: February 2, 2012
Creating Cherished Moments with Gifts of Love
Traditionally, Valentine’s Day is a day on which lovers express their affection for each other by presenting flowers, chocolates and cards. But, love can extend to many different kinds of relationships and have various meanings. According to Thesaurus.com, synonyms for love include: like, regard, respect, sentiment, delight, tenderness and cherish.
SamariTeens, our teen volunteer group, gathered together to create frames, Valentine’s day treats and birthday-in-a-box care packages for our hospice patients and their families. They cut and glued construction paper with delight to create cards rich with sentiment. They assembled each birthday memento with tenderness and gathered valentine goodies our patients are sure to like. We respect these awesome teens for taking their own time to help spread love across South Jersey.
Spread love everywhere you go.
Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier.
- Mother Theresa
