6 Valentine's Day Ideas to Celebrate in Your Community
Spreading a little love and Valentine's Day fun doesn't need to be expensive. There are plenty of low-cost, fun ways you can show your residents you care.
Host a Valentine’s (or Galentine's) Day Party
Visit your local dollar store to get some inexpensive decorations for your party room. Order in heart-shaped pizzas with refreshments and encourage residents to bring a Valentine’s Day card to drop in a bowl for everyone to pick from.
Organize a Candy Gram
A Valentine Candy Gram is a great way to get to know your residents. (Good for you, Glenn Coco!) Print and place a candy gram on each resident’s door before Valentine’s Day. On Valentine’s Day, place a large bowl of individually wrapped Valentine inspired candies and chocolates in the leasing office and invite residents to drop in to share.
Offer a Valentine’s Day Dinner Raffle for Two
Even if you are single, who doesn’t like a free dinner? Create a Valentine’s Day flyer and email it to your residents inviting them to drop by the management office to pick-up a free raffle ticket. Choose a restaurant that would be comfortable for couples or singles.
Hold a Valentine’s Day Bake Sale
Invite your residents to bake their favourite goodies decorated for Valentine’s Day. Donate all the proceeds to your company fundraiser. Sweet!
Pin a Heart on Every Resident’s Door
Ask each of your residents to write in one sentence what they would wish for on Valentine’s Day. Gather up all the hearts and display them on a large poster board. Have residents vote on their favorite one and give the winner with the most votes a Valentine’s Day gift basket.
