Our Collaboration with Cupid Crew
This Valentine's Day, Arts-n-STEM4Hearts teamed up with “Wish of a Lifetime” from the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) for the 10th annual Cupid Crew event, a nationwide effort to connect and send love to the elderly. Since the pandemic, the elderly have faced isolation and missed opportunities to connect with others. Cupid Crew takes place annually on Valentine's Day as a way to celebrate the holiday and spread love and cheer to those who may be in need of some extra support.
Students from Cornell University and the University of Maryland participated in Valentine’s Day card-making events and assembled art-therapy kits to help bring joy to older adults in their communities. These were delivered to the Wilson Health Care Center in Gaithersburg.
