Care Kits for Caregivers presented by Hickey & Turim, S.C.

August 14 - August 24

During the pandemic, our children and families have provided Operation Sunshine with artwork to share with patients at assisted living centers most of who are under quarantine without access to visitors or even other residents. We would like to further our efforts with Operation Sunshine by spreading love to the health care workers caring for these important people through the provision of Care Kits. Care Kits are small bags that may include: treats, lip balm, face mask, hand sanitizer, lotion or care card.

Purpose: Kids will pack care kits for healthcare workers at assisted living centers and create a note of thanks to show that we care and view them as HEROES during this challenging time.

Impact: Kids will see that an act of kindness can bring joy and support to others who are making a difference in our community. Kindness can provide strength to others.

Activities: Each family will sign up to make 10 Care Kits. You will pick up materials from the project leader’s home and then pack the bags at home. Each family is responsible for creating their own care cards/notes of support to place in each bag. You will drop off the care kits to the project leader’s home at an agreed upon time.

When and Where: 

Materials pick-up: August 14 & 15 (alternate dates can be arranged with project leader).

Care Kits drop off: August 23 & 24 (alternate dates can be arranged with project leader).

Pick-up/Drop-off: Project leader home on the westside of Milwaukee, specific address will be provided via email once registration is completed.
