Make Valentine Cards To Cheer Kids at Children’s Hospital Colorado

Aspen Grove Shopping Center offers families a chance to share messages of love.

Kids around Denver have an opportunity to make a big difference through a little message this Valentine’s Day. Bring kids to Aspen Grove Shopping Center from now until February 7 to create heartfelt cards for kids staying at Children’s Hospital Colorado South Campus. Stop by Rox Arts Gallery during business hours and pick up kits with everything needed to make a Valentine. Assemble the cards and pop them in the big red mailbox at the shopping center, located near Timbuk Toys.

Through the Love Letter Project, Aspen Grove’s goal is to distribute more than 400 cards for Children’s Colorado patients in time for Valentine’s Day. “We are encouraging groups to participate, like Girl Scouts or Cub Scouts, and they can drop off the cards all at once,” says Allysen Santilli, marketing manager of Aspen Grove. Groups do not have to pick up card kits to participate; it’s fine to use supplies you have on-hand. Bags of multiple cards that don’t fit through the mail slot can be turned in at Rox Arts Gallery. Can’t make it to Aspen Grove? Groups can also mail cards to: Aspen Grove Management Office, 7301 S. Santa Fe Dr., Ste. 550, Littleton, Colorado 80120.

This is Aspen Grove’s third year of collecting and distributing messages of love for people in the community. Last year, first responders received the cards. “Every year we look forward to giving back through the Love Letter Project and this year these patients will know our community is especially thinking of them,” says Santilli.
