Servas Valentine’s Day Peace Initiative

On Saturday, February 8th, we gathered in the Servas Office to make Valentine’s Day cards for the children and staff of the Arcata House, a community based non-profit whose mission is to provide a program of assistance to support families and individuals building a more stable life, to educate the community about housing issues and advocate on behalf of homeless people.

We made over 30 Valentine’s which will be delivered to the Arcata House in time for Valentine’s Day. We think this is a great way to share peace and joy in the local community. Consider doing the same for an organization in our area and be sure to tell us about it!

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 3,300 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 6 years to get that many views.

February Peace Initiative

With February being the month of love, we thought we’d send a little peace and love to the children of The Arcata House, a local non-profit that provides transitional housing and programs for local homeless families and individuals.

We will be making Valentine’s Day Cards at the Arcata Servas Office on Saturday, February 9 from 10:00 A.M. to 12:00 PM. Area members are encouraged to stop by and join us in making cards. Consider connecting with an organization in your area to send a little peace and love to the children in your community!
