Due to your generosity we were able to deliver a batch of KN95 masks to Coler Hospital! Our church has continued to deliver masks and meals to those in need during this time. Please let us know if there’s a way we can serve you or someone you know in the city! (Special thanks to jerrysmasks.com for their help in providing reliable, approved KN95 masks during this time) #kindnessbeatsthevirus

Kindness cannot be quarantined!! Here is a sneak peek of the care package being delivered to Chi Chi. Chi Chi is one of the oldest residents but has the most youthful spirit. She is very independent, strong-willed and has a vivid memory. She always tells us that even if she could fly all over the world, she would still pick NYC because she loves NYC with all her heart. 💜 She is a blessing every single time we are in her presence. #leadersoflight #inservitude #Art4NY #volunteers #kindnessbeatsthevirus #carepackages

Acrylic and markers on canvas 2020
I have done one a week for the past month while staying home. I may start another set of 4 or move on to a different size canvas. These are my big decisions these days lol.
