LOVE ON DISPLAY

The students atSt. Columban Catholic School are finding creative ways to connect with their local community in Garden Grove. For Valentine’s Day the student council reached out to Mary McGary, activities director for  Brookdale Senior Living in Garden Grove to ask if they could make Valentine cards for the seniors and staff. 

With the help of children in preschool through 8th grade, St. Columban students handmade over 130 cards to be given out on Valentine’s Day at the senior center.  

“It’s such a simple yet compassionate thing to send a card to a local senior who may be feeling especially lonely and isolated during the pandemic,” said the school’s representative, Nicole Ambata, “but to that senior, it may make his or her day!”
