The Cherokee Recreation & Parks Agency wants to make sure the county's older residents will feel loved on Valentine's Day.

The agency is now collecting items for its Project Valentine. The agency is calling on the public to donate small tubes or bottles of hypoallergenic lotion, tubes of Vaseline, or plain lip balm, Valentine knick-knacks, sugar-free and regular candy, and packs of cracker through Friday, Feb. 7.

The items will be placed in goody bags and will be delivered to the Canton Nursing Center and the Brian Center. 

Donations may be dropped off at CRPA's offices in Woodstock, which sit at 7545 Main Street. CRPA would like to deliver 200 bags on Valentine’s Day. 

Volunteers to help fill the bags are also welcome to help.  

For more information, contact Lindsey Collett at (770) 924-7768 or lcollett@cherokeega.com.
