Bucket of Love
Bucket of Love first began in 2013 with 100 buckets personally delivered by 17 volunteers to senior citizens living in long-term nursing communities. Each bucket is filled with a pair of premium quality non-skid socks, See’s candy suckers, chocolates, lip balm, travel size tissues, Valentine goodies and lastly, a home-made card specially designed by a school-age child.
Each year, Bucket List Foundation partners with organizations such elementary schools, Boys and Girls Club and Girl Scouts of America to engage youth in designing cards. This has been an amazing opportunity for BLF to empower our youth to be part of making a difference in the life of senior citizens.
As we continue this annual Valentine’s outreach, thousands of senior citizens across nursing homes, assisted living facilities, Veteran hospital and long-terms veteran homes have been moved by this outpouring of love on Valentine’s Day; a day that is often forgotten for this generation. In turn, this outreach has a ripple effect on our community, which has impacted the way individuals view senior citizens.
Please consider helping Bucket List Foundation continue our Bucket of Love outreach on Valentine’s Day by getting involved or making a donation. Together WE can make a difference in the lives of our senior generation.
