Teen Girl is Raising Money to Purchase Coloring Books, Puzzles for Nursing Homes
You’re never too young to lend a helping hand and a young girl in Chester County Pennsylvania is proving that.
Hita Gupta is a sophomore at Conestoga High School and she has been donating some fun care packages to nursing homes around her area. According to Fox News, “She packs one puzzle book, one coloring book, and a pack of colored pencils/crayons, and her 9-year-old brother, Divit, writes an uplifting note to include in the packages.”
Gupta started sending these items to nursing homes “[t]o cheer seniors up and let them know that the community cares about them during this difficult time”. She got this idea from working at a local nursing home and seeing what is like when residents get lonely. Especially now more than ever since most nursing homes are restricting visitors.

When the project began, the sophomore was using her own money but now she has started up a GoFundMe page called “Help Elderly at Nursing Homes Fight Coronavirus!” However, raising money hasn’t been the hardest part of this process.
“One of the biggest challenges has been things being out of stock. I initially started out by thinking I was going to send hand sanitizer,” she told Fox 29 of Philadelphia. So, she switched to buying them coloring books instead to lift their spirits.
As of writing this, Gupta has raised $1,990 of her $5,000 goal on her GoFundMe, and if you would like to donate to her cause Click Here! And check out her nonprofit organization “Brighten a Day” by Clicking Here!
