Since January, Kensington Voice staff has been working with community members to create valentines for people, places, and things in the community. (Design by Jillian Bauer-Reese)

Few things convey love and care like a hand-made gift. This month, participants at our story corner workshops showed love by crafting valentines for people, places, and things in their community. Just like no two loves are alike, no two of these cards are the same. Check out the images below to see how people got creative with expressing their appreciation for those around them.
