Since announcing the Hearts at Work project last week to students, staff, and instructors, the Brasstown post office has been delivering heart-filled packages every day. We’re enjoying hearing from everyone and seeing all the creativity and care our students and instructors are putting into their “hearts.” 

C. Angela Mohr writes:

“Dear Hearts at Work, I have been weaving hearts since our lockdown began, knowing that other hearts would need them. How fortunate to get the email today! Thank you!”

Many thanks to our family of artists for helping us honor frontline workers in Cherokee and Clay counties. We’ve estimated nearly 2,800 essential workers from postal clerks to health care workers and grocery store employees. We’re hoping to receive many more hearts to meet our goal.

For more information about guidelines, and how to submit, read: Hearts at Work: Honoring Our Frontline Community Workers.

We are currently receiving hearts and will update the gallery with photos of submissions regularly.
