Embrace America

Senior and long-term care facilities across the country will host “Community Hug Centers”, to provide safe, non-threatening environments for this friendly, healthy and fun celebration.

Hug Centers pledge the number of hugs they intend to share.   During Hug Holiday Week, all hugs shared will be tallied and entered on the Hug-O-Meter. Hug Centers submit their results and entered into the National Competition for Most Hugs Shared!

This project is an introduction to senior and long-term care facilities, with the intention that it will lead to on-going volunteer support.
