Kits of Kindness ~ helping our elders continue to flourish. While on fixed incomes and asked to stay-safe-in place, our seniors are missing basic essential items.
Kits of Kindness, a branch of Bouquets of Kindness, a non-profit that would normally deliver donated event flowers to seniors in assisted living or memory care homes. We were faced with a decision when Covid-19 stopped us from visiting our friends. We could sit and do nothing or pivot. We decided to pivot!
We learned that many of our elderly friends fall extremely short in meeting their own basic needs on their very limited incomes.
Many assisted living homes have found their residents needing basic supplies like meal supplement drinks, paper towels, toilet paper, trash bags, lotion, and other simple items. Shopping for these items isn't easy and when they are able to get to the stores, the items they need are often not available.
Buying in bulk will not only save money, but limits the numbers of hands involved in the process. We will collect and sanitize all items before delivery to the seniors.
Our goal is to start with supporting 75 seniors -meeting their basic needs for four months. Our seniors live in Jacksonville, Florida in rent controlled/income based homes.
We are a 501c3 non-profit.
