Valentine's Day Cover

Make February fun for our kids!

Send a valentine, make a valentine, or donate to help us spread some cheer! When we aren't in a pandemic, our amazing volunteers help our kids celebrate Valentine's Day with crafts and an in-person celebration. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are asking for your help to still help create a special day for our kids - in a different way.

Have some extra time on your hands? Make some Valentine's Day cards for our kids!

Don't have too much time, but you'd still like to show some love? Buy some Valentine's Cards for our kids and send them to Italian Home.

Love this idea but cards aren't your thing? Donate using the form on this page to help buy some crafts and activities for our kids to do this winter!

Where should I send the cards?

Italian Home for Children

c/o Valentine's Day

1125 Centre Street

Jamaica Plain, MA 02130

How many Valentines should I make so that every child gets one?

30. Please and thank you!

What if I am not able to send 30?

No worries! We are thankful for any number of cards you can send. Our kiddos will love them!

How old are the youth living at Italian Home?

Ages 4 to 14

Can I know their names to address the cards?

Unfortunately, HIPAA laws do not allow for us to disclose this information. Please make them general. Our kiddos will love them!

If I make a donation, what does that go towards?

For this project, we are hoping to raise funds to buy craft supplies for some activities for our kiddos. Additional funds beyond the need for supplies will be put into the Annual Fund, which helps to fund our core work of care for the children.

I have an idea or a question that's not on this site. Who do I contact?
