This year, instead of the usual self-loathing over how I was once again loveless on another Valentine’s Day, I decided I’d use that energy toward giving out some love for people who really needed it. I enlisted the help of my good friend, Ivana, and what began as a simple idea, became a whole lot more.
We are so fortunate to know such loving and generous people. We were able to feed and provide a little more warmth to more than 100 people in the city on this day, mostly homeless, in shelters and on streets. Thank you to all those who donated, the volunteers who helped us get the packages together, and our dear friends who woke up at 8 a.m. on a cold Saturday morning to help us distribute the items.
