Smile Boxes

January 11, 2021 3:34 pm

Distributed monthly, Smile Boxes is a program that launched last year to help combat the growing issue of isolation, particularly among seniors. Inspired by the current subscription box trend where participants receive boxes of products and goodies regularly, FISH volunteers deliver these to islanders on a monthly basis. Contents may include items like, activity books (crosswords, word searches, etc.), cards, puzzles, soaps, DIY gardening kits, candles, crochet/knitting kits, comfy socks, handheld back massagers, stationery sets with stamps, and even healthy (but sweet) treats.
