It is already the second year that our university in cooperation with the University Hospital of L. Pasteur Košice joined the nationwide “How much love fits in a shoebox” project organized by the civic association called How Much Love.  Almost 100 jointly packed shoeboxes were handed over to the Ján Bocatius Public Library in Košice from where they will be sent to seniors in nursing homes for the elderly, hospital geriatric wards, hospices and to municipalities keeping records of seniors living alone.

In addition to sweets, savory snacks and other little things, the boxes also included handmade lavender hearts made by the Lighthouse of Hope c. a. workshops which serve as a form of occupational therapy. 

Our thanks goes to everyone who participated and contributed to a more beautiful Christmas for seniors across the country.
