Bentonville, AR – Circle of Life Hospice is spreading love this Valentine’s Day by hosting its first Valentine’s event, sending their “Cupid Crew” of more than 20 volunteers across Northwest Arkansas to visit hospice patients and their families. The crew will be delivering roses and a special Valentine’s Day card. “Valentine’s Day can be a particularly difficult and lonely time. Through the #CupidCrew movement, we’re changing that by sharing a rose and a conversation with our patients in Northwest Arkansas,” states Nancy Desler, marketing & communications manager.
Volunteers will visit with patients and families in their homes, at facilities and at the hospice homes in Bentonville and Springdale. Our goal is to provide a rose and a smile to each of our patients on Valentine’s Day.
“A Wish of a Lifetime” is a national organization that promotes respect and appreciation for aging seniors, and was originally founded in Colorado in 2008. In 2014, Wish of a Lifetime created #CupidCrew, a nationwide volunteer movement that delivers roses to the elderly on Valentine’s Day. Circle of Life became a partner this year and is sponsored by the Ladies Auxiliary group, Angels Paying it Forward. The Ladies Auxiliary was created to empower women to make a difference by supporting Circle of Life patients and families.
Circle of Life is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization providing compassionate end-of-life care to residents of Washington, Benton, Carroll and Madison counties.
