For those of you who have seen hearts up in windows and doors around the neighborhood, these are a helpful effort to fight isolation and an initiative courtesy of some of our thoughtful-minded residents. Big thanks for keeping up spirits and a sense of wonder in Jefferson Village!
Isolated but not alone -heart project
A few people in the neighborhood heard of an idea to have kids and grown ups alike make hearts of all shapes, sizes and colors and post them on our windows and doors. It’s a great way to let folks in the neighborhood know that we are all “together” and it’s also a great social distancing scavenger hunt while we are all out on our walks. These are the ones that my family has found so far... and we will be putting our hearts in our windows this afternoon.
Maria Fernandez took some time and put together some great links for her clients and the neighborhood. Thanks to her and Moore Homes for their efforts to keep everyone happy and healthy!
