Motoro­la Solu­tions Cre­ates Kind­ness Crates

As the glob­al COVID-19 pan­dem­ic con­tin­ues, many old­er adults face increased iso­la­tion and are at risk of depres­sion, anx­i­ety, and cog­ni­tive decline. Although tech­nol­o­gy has allowed many to con­nect in new and cre­ative ways, for those with­out access or the com­fort of using these devices, the last sev­en months have been par­tic­u­lar­ly challenging. 

KYC’s Home Deliv­ered Meals Pro­gram has expe­ri­enced record-break­ing growth in that time, serv­ing hun­dreds of meals each Mon­day, Wednes­day, and Fri­day to seniors through­out Schaum­burg and Elk Grove Town­ships. With each deliv­ery, a friend­ly vol­un­teer checks in on each senior, ensur­ing their safe­ty and health.

Robert and the Motorola Solutions Team gathered at KYC's Elk Grove Office on Tuesday to pack their Kindness Crates.

Rec­og­niz­ing the iso­la­tion too many seniors face, Robert Kosciuk gath­ered a group of more than 30 Motoro­la Solu­tions vol­un­teers to cre­ate Kind­ness Crates — box­es packed full with sweet treats, hand-made art­work, mes­sages of friend­ship, sta­tion­ary, cross­word puz­zles, lotions, and more.

We want­ed to do some­thing that spread some sup­port and kind­ness to local old­er adults” said Robert. We hope these box­es put a smile on their faces and help them know that we’re think­ing of them even if we can’t be in the same place.”

Motorola Solutions Team Members individually shopped for care package items and came together in KYC's Elk Grove parking lot to put the boxes together.

Togeth­er, the team packed more than 75 care pack­ages for old­er adults, each lov­ing­ly packed by a Motoro­la Solu­tions friend these seniors would nev­er get to meet.

In addi­tion to all their work, the team raised more than $3,000 for the Home Deliv­ered Meals Pro­gram, fund­ing more than 600 meals to old­er adults in need.

KYC is proud to hon­or and rec­og­nize Robert and our friends at Motoro­la Solu­tions for their incred­i­ble kind­ness and sup­port. Your gen­eros­i­ty and thought­ful­ness is deeply felt. On behalf of the many old­er adults whose days you’ve bright­ened, THANK YOU.
