Although members of

Soroptimist International

of the Sierra Foothills (SISF)

are only able to meet via

Zoom, they were each

thrilled to continue their

annual tradition of

preparing Valentine’s Day

cards for those who receive

Meals on Wheels.

Each SISF member took time to prepare a number of greetings to be delivered with this year’s Valentine’s Day meals. 

Everyone enjoyed hearkening back to grammar school days to painstakingly choose the right cards or to design and make cards perfect for the recipients.  Some went so far as to include candies, while others presented them elaborately, and decorating them with stickers, ribbons, and bows.

The goal was for each of the 280 meal recipients to feel special on this Valentine’s Day, especially due to the crazy times we are currently experiencing.
