N Street Village Volunteer and In-Kind Gifts Coordinator Heidi Gauthier shared, “Providing opportunities for our dedicated volunteers to create fun memories with our clients is one of the best ways to foster community and share our gratitude for their service.”

Using a variety of donated mediums from glitter to stickers to candy hearts, everyone put on their creative hats to create Valentine’s Day cards for loved ones.  Alberta, a resident who attended the event couldn’t have said it better, “What an enjoyable evening! This was really fun and I liked meeting our volunteers.”
