Hearts for Hospice

February 11, 2021

A group of young children with big hearts found a way to share the love for this coming Valentine’s Day.

On Tuesday, February 9, the Red Deer Hospice received a care package from the grade 1-3 students from First Steps and Beyond school – valentines and colourful hearts to deck the house for Valentine’s Day.

Students decorated 16 envelopes with a valentine and window heart – one for each resident room at the Red Deer Hospice – in addition to a card for staff and 24 stained-glass window hearts to spread cheer around the house.

While they couldn’t visit to share the love in person, these thoughtful hand-made gifts brought smiles to the faces of all the residents, family and staff!
