Valentine's Day Drive

Showing love to the seniors and veterans at our residential programs.

A small gesture can make a big difference to someone experiencing loneliness. This winter, we’ve expanded our “Valentines for Veterans” initiative to also benefit the many older adults in our programs, including our newest development, East Clarke Place Senior Residence. In honor of Valentine’s Day, let our clients know you care by participating in our "Thinking of You" drive.

How to Get Involved

HELP AS A TEAM. This is a wonderful employee engagement opportunity for our Strategic Partners that can be conducted in-person or remotely. Create handwritten Valentine's Day cards to be given to the older adults and veterans together with a warm pair of gloves or another winter item (like a hat or a scarf). Organize a collection drive at your office or purchase items from our Amazon wish list. Email volunteers@voa-gny.org to learn more.

SHOP THE WISH LIST. Purchase warm winter items from our Amazon wish list and they'll be shipped directly to our programs.

MAKE A DONATION. Short on time? Your gift will help us purchase enough gloves, hats and/or scarves for each of the older adults and veterans in our permanent, supportive housing programs. Give now.
