The past two years have been tough on everyone, but one of the groups that have had it toughest have been those who are living in long term care homes.
Aside from the fact that more than 1/3 of all COVID deaths in Ontario have been in residents of these homes, they have had to withstand months of isolation from their family and who knows what this year will look like.
That's why Watermark Plumbing has launched the “Smile Drive” – an initiative with the goal of bringing smiles to the faces of 5000 people this holiday season.
After coming up with the Smile Drive, we have been in contact with long term care homes across the city who are extremely excited that this could be a possibility. We just need your help in getting there!
We are asking you, your kids, your friends, your students or classmates, and everyone else you know, to take 10 minutes out of your day and write a short letter or draw a picture for one of these residents. If you like, you can even include your contact information and they might write back!
On December 23, we will be hand delivering these letters to care homes across the city – just in time for Christmas. We’ve only got 3 weeks to pull this off, so we need to move fast!
How to get involved
If you are interested in joining this adventure with us, we ask that you mail your letters and pictures by December 15th to:
PO Box 40017 Dupont PO
Also, please reach out if you would like to initiate the Smile Drive at your child’s school, place of work, etc. We will personally pick up the letters and pictures if you are able to generate 100 or more.
