Lifting Hearts With the Arts

Charity Footprints Partner - Lifting Hearts With the Arts

405 N Wabash Avenue Unit 4903 | Program Focus: Arts, Culture and Humanities


We're a 501(c)(3) founded in April of 2020 by a group of four Chicago high school students that aims to connect seniors and youth via one on one and group activities. We raise money to donate devices, like iPads and tablets as well as art supplies to seniors at care facilities in need to help seniors virtually visit their friends and family and to help bridge the technological divide.

Our Mission

Our mission is to use the arts to connect with residents of care facilities and others who feel isolated from their family or friends. Uplifting spirits by fostering empathetic relationships between compassionate students and isolated residents can help us all bridge social gaps brought on by quarantines and other circumstances. The pleasant sound of a musical instrument, a ray of color from vibrant paint, a chuckle from a well played game or a simple chat may be enough to shake away the loneliness many feel in difficult times.
