Cumberland Valley Cares
Cumberland Valley Cares is a group of committed volunteers organized to help those in need in the Cumberland Valley area. Our current mission is to utilize volunteers at the least risk for severe COVID-19 reactions to assist with various tasks to help help with the COVID-19 crisis. Activities include working to bring groceries and supplies to those in high-risk demographics, and collecting medical supplies for clinics and hospitals. Requirements: must be healthy and minors will need parental consent.
Elderly homes are very vulnerable during these times of COVID-19. To ensure less stress and more joy within the walls of elderly homes, I ask for pieces of your best art. This can be in the form of a card, a painting, or a small sketch it just has to be creative and enthusiastic.
Learn In Shelter
Learn in Shelter was started by a group of high school students in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Many students are struggling with transitioning to remote learning and lack the support needed to continue their education. We aim to provide individualized attention to each student to supplement their learning.
Letters Against Isolation
Our volunteers' handwritten letters of joy and positivity help fight senior loneliness! We write to over 1,500 seniors, and need your help to reach them all. This is an excellent project for anyone from children to seniors! Write as many or as few letters as you can.

Smile Card provides a smile to over 80 senior centers during the COVID-19 pandemic. Take a moment, all you need is a paper and pen. Submitted digital artwork will be added to a gallery so that senior shelters and hospitals can share it with their residents or patients. Email us a card, letter, poem, or other piece of artwork (in the form of a JPEG) to spread the joy and put a smile on someone's face. Join the effort to bring smiles to seniors.
