‘Cupid Cabins’ bring Valentine’s Day to senior citizens


Join local businesses as they seek to bless our seniors this February with their give-back event, called “Project Be My Valentine.”
Little Man Handbags, 110 Church St., Whitinsville, invites the general public to stop in the shop and fill out some Valentine’s cards, which will then be distributed to local senior centers. This free event is being sponsored by the Women of Massachusetts Engagement Network.
We are calling participating local businesses that will have Valentine’s on hand in their shops “Cupid Cabins.” These businesses in addition to Little Man Handbags include all of the following in the Blackstone Valley and beyond: Herbs Make Scents (Mendon); Ashland Reiki Center (Ashland); Purely You Aesthetics, Janine’s Jewlery, Grapevine, Bird & Bear Collective and The Candy Cottage (all from Holliston); Gracefully Restored (Hopkinton); White Belle Home (Upton); Rustic Fair & Co. (Hopedale); Ocean Dreams Market (Sherborn) and Fiori & Fern (Franklin).
The Women of Massachusetts Engagement Network W.O.M.E.N.) was founded on the premises that we ignite inspiration in our community when we showcase people doing amazing things. When this was started in 2019, the group was committed to hosting NO COST events for women to gather and network. W.O.M.E.N. has hosted many events in Hopkinton and Milford as well as over Zoom during COVID. The three co-founders are executives for Massachusetts-based technology companies and started this organization as a way to give back to the community. They are passionate about helping women at all places in their lives to thrive and be seen.
Valentines are available through February 13.
Little Man Handbags is open Wedneday-Friday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
