UBS Spreads The Love

Love was in the air this February, as a small group of volunteers from UBS helped children at an after-school program in Hoboken, NJ write Valentine’s Day notes to their peers. The volunteers helped the children think of creative, encouraging, and thoughtful notes to write to one another.
