THANK YOU to all the schools, classrooms, Girl Scout and Cub Scout troops that sent love and support to nursing homes during the school closures this spring. We’ll be back in the fall to match more schools with homes and keep the love flowing. Stay tuned!

Calling All Educators!

Are you and your students looking for a meaningful way to help others at this unprecedented time? Help us support hardworking nursing home staff and their isolated residents by sending uplifting, handmade messages to some of our most vulnerable populations.

The enormous ramifications of Covid-19 are rippling through our state, and nursing homes in Massachusetts have had to prohibit all visitors since early March. Residents have lost their community connections and activities, and dedicated staff are working under tremendous pressure to keep their residents safe. Together, we can help make their days a little brighter.

Join us in providing your students with a rewarding project that will bring joy to givers and recipients alike. It’s a win-win! Let’s send letters, artwork and even poems to the workers and residents in nursing homes. This is a terrific way for students to create work for an authentic audience.

Please note that Students Sending Love is run by volunteers and is not affiliated with any organization. We will run the program for as long as schools are closed or until we have met our goal of sending love to every one of Massachusetts' 388 nursing homes—whichever event occurs first!

We would like to thank Sarah Brannen for the whimsical website artwork and Shennen Bersani for the delightful downloadable templates.
