An Abbotsford Facebook group is encouraging local residents to join a nation-wide movement to fill their windows with paper hearts in support of front-line workers.
“The Hearts of Abbotsford” group states that the initiative is “a way for the community to come together during this pandemic and all the uncertainty that is before us.”
The page also encourages people to share pictures of their own creations or of those that they see when they’re walking, driving or cycling around the city.
People around the country have not only been posting paper hearts on the windows of their homes and businesses, but have also made hearts out of lights, flags and stickers.
The idea is to let front-line workers – such as doctors, nurses, hospital staff, police, paramedics, firefighters and others – know that they are appreciated during the COVID-19 pandemic.
