Smile Boxes continue to be a hit
F.I.S.H. of Sanibel-Captiva reported that its Smile Boxes continue to be a popular program.
Launched last year to help combat the growing issue of isolation, particularly among seniors, the program is growing and is complimented each month. Inspired by the subscription box trend where participants receive boxes of products and goodies regularly, F.I.S.H. volunteers deliver the Smile Boxes to islanders on a monthly basis.
The contents of the boxes may include items like activity books including crosswords and word searches, cards, puzzles, soaps, DIY gardening kits, candles, crochet and knitting kits, comfy socks, handheld back massagers, stationery sets with stamps, and even healthy — but sweet — treats.
If you know someone who would benefit from the program, call Susan Alexander at 239-472-4775.
