Winter Community Card Drive
Our popular community cards project is back, supporting Community Caregivers as they serve our neighbors. All ages can get involved – individuals, families, groups – contributing hand-made or recycled cards to be delivered to one of their 200+ clients. Here are the guidelines:
• Create or repurpose card(s) no larger than 4” x 5”
• Use a general winter/holiday theme
• Optional: add an uplifting message and/or sign the card(s)
• Envelopes will be provided by Community Caregivers, but if your card comes with one, please include; do not seal
• Community Caregivers will address and mail all cards received
• Postage stamp donations are appreciated
To help facilitate the project, we’ll have supplies in the Tawasentha room so you can stop in and make or repurpose one of our donated cards. Follow the sign near the new book area. Drop off your card(s) by Mon. Dec. 11 in the marked bin found in our lobby. Thank you for helping to spread some kindness to brighten someone’s day!
