Color Give Smile was created after we got to know some of the seniors in assisted living. While many seniors can be quiet, they still have a need for comfort, laughter and friendships. These seniors may have little or no decorations of their own in their living space.
There are two things we noticed that made them smile: 1. silly pictures and 2. children. While we started off with just child volunteers, we have expanded into all ages and have seen how talented our volunteers can be! When the idea was fresh in our minds, we reached out to another organization that sent cards to seniors and found that they were retiring! We felt this was our duty to pick up and start our own program and we have been inspired by all of you since.
