Two neighborhood organizations in the Bedford area are reaching out to senior citizens living in town to say 'Happy Valentines Day.'
In Pound Ridge, the Neighbor to Neighbor Youth Corps is sponsoring "Project Cupid," and the Bedford Hills Neighborhood Assocation is sponsoring "Sweets for Seniors."
Both have a similar process: Volunteers are needed to bake sweet treats then sort them and finally, deliver them to residents who typically may not have very many visitors—or any at all.
In Pound Ridge, the delivery takes place on Sun. Feb. 10, from 1 p.m. - 4 p.m. The early part of the afternoon will be devoted to collecting baked goods and sorting them for delivery. From 2 -4 p.m. the treats will be sorted and delivered.
In Bedford Hills, drop off is Tues. Feb. 12 from 6 p.m. - 8 p.m. Volunteers are needed to bake and package treats into goodie bags and deliver. On February 14, the sweets will be delivered to local seniors. Children and their parents are encouraged to meet at Fellowship Hall on Valentine's Day to hand out the goodies at 4 p.m.
