CLEVELAND — The world could use a little more kindness and if you look closely around Northeast Ohio, you just might see signs of it thanks to “Walls of Love.”

The organization, which assembles bags full of hygiene items, school supplies, and clothing and attaches them to walls across the area for people to take what they need, celebrated its second anniversary on Saturday.

In honor of the second year helping those in need across Northeast Ohio, Walls of Love volunteers expanded their efforts, assembling 50 walls across 14 states.

Holly Jackson, the founder of Walls of Love, said that the COVID-19 pandemic has made the organization's mission even more crucial.

"I think everybody as a whole has seen through the pandemic that maybe you're only just a couple paychecks away from being in the same situation. And we need to learn to love each other more and we need to learn to be more tolerant and more patient and I think this pandemic is teaching us that,” Jackson said.
