Hilltown Families on Mass Appeal:
Handmade Valentine Swap

Hilltown Families and Mass Appeal (a weekday, hour-long lifestyle program on NBC) have teamed up to offer a live monthly segment on WWLP 22News! Each month, community-based education specialist and Hilltown Families’ Founder, Sienna Wildfield, joins Mass Appeal hosts to talk about ways to engage in your community while supporting the interests and education of your children (and yourselves!).

This monthly segment continued on Monday, January 28, 2019, with Sienna and Danny talking Hilltown Families annual Handmade Valentine Swap, sharing examples from previous swaps, and empowering folks to take back Valentine’s Day from the clutches of commercialization with small tokens of community friendship and kindness.
