This has ended. If you attended, let the organizer know by recording your Impact!


The holiday season is here and one fun, safe way to spread joy this time of year is by writing Notes of Hope. Give your time to share kind words, positive messages, and community connection to bring smiles to your neighbors!

Get Started
This is a great activity to get in touch with your creative side! You can make as many cards as you like during this volunteer project. We recommend writing about 5 to 10 notes or letters to be able to share Notes of Hope with many northern Nevadans. Your letters can be hand written, typed, include fun colors, fun paper designs, or whatever comes to mind with the goal being to spread joy! Be as creative as you like, and please keep the following in mind:
  • Use encouraging and positive language
  • Not every note needs to be about the holidays, think about what will make the reader smile. If you are writing a holiday-themed note, please use "Happy Holidays" to include everyone
