CORNWALL – City councillor Brock Frost has announced his second annual Hugs & Kisses event on Valentine’s Day.
Last year on Feb. 14 numerous volunteers showed up to hand out Hershey’s chocolate kisses to local seniors.
The event was inspired by Frost’s mother, who spent 20 years working at the Glen-Stor-Dun Lodge, a retirement home in the east end of Cornwall.
“I feel that too often our seniors are forgotten and simply put aside,” argues Frost. “Anything we can do to put a smile on their face, even for just one day, has a significant impact on their well-being.”
Frost is currently arranging the list of retirement homes for this year’s event and is looking to recruit volunteers.
The councilman asks that anyone interested in donating time and smiles to this event to contact him directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
