This Valentine’s Day, The Congressional Award is teaming up with Wish of a Lifetime from AARP to encourage schools and volunteers of all ages to participate in the 11th annual Cupid Crew, a nationwide effort to help older Americans feel connected and loved.

No matter the age, we all need connection to thrive physically and emotionally. But nearly one in four adults age 65 and older are isolated. That’s 50 million Americans who may not see or hear from anyone on Valentine’s Day. Through Cupid Crew, you can help them feel more connected and loved.

Join us in sending love!

Check out our toolkit and list of participating senior centers below or visit Wish of a Lifetime from AARP to learn more.

We are excited to see the impact you are making in the lives of older adults in your community. In order to share your experience and inspire others to get involved, we would love for you to submit a photo and a reflection of you writing your letter.

In the form below, you’ll have the opportunity to share:

  • Photo/video content of yourself writing your letter or care package
  • A reflection on what inspired you to participate in the Cupid Crew campaign
  • A description of the experience of writing your letter or care package
  • How you hope your letter or care package will impact the life of the older adult you are sending it to

Your submission will help us showcase the impact of the Cupid Crew campaign and encourage others to get involved.

Thank you for your participation and for making a difference in the lives of older adults in your community!
