“Little Hands, Big Hearts” Valentine’s Crafting Event on February 12

Family-Friendly Community Service Opportunity at Emerson Hospital


UPDATE: Given today’s weather forecast later this afternoon, we will hold Little Hands, Big Hearts a little earlier than planned, beginning at 1 p.m. and ending at 3 p.m. We look forward to seeing anyone who wants to get out before the storm. Of course, please use your best judgement – our first priority is everyone’s safety! As an alternative, if you find yourselves home this afternoon, consider making your valentines there and dropping them off in the basket at the hospital’s front desk tomorrow, and we’ll be able to get them to patients just in time for Valentine’s Day!

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, the Auxiliary of Emerson Hospital invites families with young children to participate in a free Valentine crafting party on Tuesday, February 12.  At “Little Hands, Big Hearts,” all the Valentine trimmings will be provided to make special handmade cards that will be given to patients at Emerson Hospital on Valentine’s Day.  Best for children ages 3-10, this festive, drop-in event will take place in the Cheney Conference Room at Emerson Hospital between 1–3 p.m.

This is a wonderful opportunity for young children to have some creative fun and help brighten the spirits of people in the community who are hospitalized. Members of Emerson’s Auxiliary will staff the crafts tables.  All children must be accompanied by an adult.  Parking will be validated.

Bring your friends and family and have fun at this creative “giving back to the community” Valentine’s event. Community partners Concord Animal Hospital and Concord Teacakes are sponsors of Little Hands, Big Hearts.  For more information, please contact Christine Kielar at emersonauxiliary@gmail.com or 978-287-8765.
