Small acts of kindness

Pines of Sarasota Foundation is asking the community to send notes and drawings to its residents.
by: Whitney Elfstrom Staff Writer

Pines of Sarasota is on a quest to brighten the days of its residents with the written word or handmade artwork. 

The senior living facility on Orange Avenue near downtown is looking for well wishers to write kind notes and for children to draw pictures that let residents know they’re being thought of. Visitation has been restricted out of concerns about the spread of COVID-19. 

All handwritten notes and photos should be scanned and emailed to [email protected]
