Cards, flowers, and chocolates are all fun ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day and show someone that you love them. But how about something a little bit different, a way to spread that love further? You can make a donation to Lund in honor of a loved one on Valentine’s Day and we will send them a card letting them know that a gift was made in their name.
Your donation will directly help women, children and families in Vermont as they grow the love in their family through adoption, harness the power of love to help overcome the challenge of addiction, learn how to show love to their children though parenting education and so much more. Your gift will show the families at Lund that the community supports and loves them.
You can make your gift here.
Make your donation by 2/7 to ensure the card gets to your sweetie in time for Valentine’s Day!
