Live with Purpose- April Mugs of Love

Send love this month to isolated seniors by assembling cups with tea and sweets to brighten the day their day.

Who are we helping? Mugs of Love are donated to Meals on Wheels to help support their isolated senior clients.

Jewish Values in Action:

  • Hiddur Pnei Zaken – honoring the elderly


  • Mugs or Cups that can hold hot liquids
  • Oil based paint Markers (for ceramic mugs)
  • Individually wrapped tea bags, hot chocolate, coffee
  • Candies: chocolate kisses and/or hard candies
  • Individually wrapped cookies: milanos, oreos, etc.
  • Cellophane Treat Bags
  • Ribbon or Twist ties
  • Tags or notes to put in the cup


  1. Decorate the cup with markers, if desired.
  2. Place 2-3 tea (or other beverage) bags, a large handful of candies, and cookies inside of the cup- the cup should look full.
  3. Place the cup inside the gift bag and close with twist tie or ribbon.
  4. Add a personalized gift tag onto the bag or add a note, i.e. “enjoy!”, “wishing you well!”
