Sanibel students create cards for seniors
Students at The Sanibel School recently became neighbors helping neighbors by creating Halloween pop-up cards for F.I.S.H. of Sanibel-Captiva’s Senior Box Program. In October, community service volunteers Jackson and McKenna Sprecher delivered the boxes to island seniors.
The program was launched in August to help combat the growing issue of isolation among seniors and the boxes are distributed monthly. Inspired by the subscription box trend, where participants receive boxes of products and goodies regularly, the contents may include items such as activity books like crosswords and word searches, cards, puzzles, soaps, DIY gardening kits, candles, crochet/knitting kits, comfy socks, handheld back massagers, stationery sets with stamps, and even healthy but sweet treats.
