COVID Check-In Care Package Initiative

Our mission is to bring the Dallas community together during this global crisis. Now, more than ever, it is extremely important to come together and help each other, especially since Texas restrictions are easing even though cases are increasing by the day. There are still so many citizens such as those who are elderly, immunocompromised or have underlying conditions that are still at great risk. This pandemic is far from over, and we need your help!

Currently, we are working on our "Colors for Care" project. This pandemic has highlighted the importance of mental health care, and thousands of senior residents in nursing homes in Dallas and across the nation have been limited from interaction with their families and friends, causing them to feel isolated and lonely. 

The COVID Check-In team has been working on creating uplifting care packages for residents of nursing homes and assisted living facilities. Due to COVID restrictions, several facilities have been placed on lockdown, therefore, preventing family, friends, and volunteers from visiting. As a result, residents have been feeling isolated and lonely. Our goal is to spread some love and remind the residents that we are thinking of them. Each package contains one coloring book, one puzzle book (i.e. word search, sudoku, etc.), one pack of colored pencils, a few snacks and treats, and some handwritten cards all placed in one gift bag.
