Stratford, March 29: A beautiful relationship with University of Bridgeport Shintaro Akatsu School of Design at University of Bridgeport! Our Newtown President, Patti has been working hard on making Hearts out of clay locally and turned out some of the best quality hearts to date. We are so fortunate to have the use of a Kiln at UB, thanks to Max Shangle! We are honored to have them as part of our Hearts of Hope family and looking forward to UB’s upcoming Day of Hope in April! It was great to meet with Olivia, a student senator who will be organizing and running this Workshop and creating hope for a local organization. It truly is our Volunteers and the community who make hope happen! We are so fortunate to have so many beautiful relationships and we are excited to be expanding and extending our Hearts program in Bridgeport on a regular basis.


Stratford, March 28: Stratford Chapter Vice President Gwen Cook painted Hearts for Parkland at Elii Whitney Elementary School with Mrs. Terifay's kindergarten's class...another adventure with shaving cream! It is so much fun! If we had better access to water, we would do some at our monthly painting events!

March 30: A great Leadership luncheon at Maxwell's American Grille with our founder Judy Pedersen! Gwen presented Judy with a book of awesome photos showcasing all the events and positive impacts over the past year.


Newtown, March 28: What a wonderful evening painting for Fidelco Guide Dog Foundation and their puppy raisers. We would like to thank Doug Fuchs and Xeus for coming to speak to us and to visit. Doug is doing a wonderful job of raising this pup. He is a beautiful animal and I know there will be a thrilled client in his future. Thank you to all our supporters and volunteers!

January 26, Stanhope — Lenape Valley Senior Girl Scout Troop 418 hosted its second annual Paint with A Purpose night on January 26th, 2018. Over 155 participants came out for a night of community service creating art by painting ceramic hearts, and writing inspirational notes to those who need it most. Sister Scouts from the Sparta Service Unit were in attendance, as well as GSNNJ representatives Judy Ginty and Maria Gonzales, and Terry Becker who is on the board of directors for Hearts of Hope. After all hearts were glazed and packaged, we were able to create over 300 gifts that will be donated to local charities, including, hospitals, children's hospitals, cancer centers, veterans organizations, and anywhere where these handmade gifts of art, will inspire and help heal those who are suffering. This was the single largest Girl Scout event in the non-profits Our Hearts of Hope's history.
