Caring Cards and Crafts for Seniors

Many of us look forward to celebrating Holidays with the ones we love, but for others, it can be very lonesome. Holidays of any kind can lead to extra heartache for those who may have lost somebody close to them. You can partner with Meals on Wheels to make cards for seniors to help brighten their day. Caring Cards & Crafts is a great project for students, teachers, youth groups and families. The cards & crafts are simple, handmade cutouts, but the thought and meaning behind each one is so much greater. The cards are filled with love, good wishes and even poetry. Deadlines: Thanksgiving: 11/21/2018 Winter: 12/21/2018
