HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

Many homebound seniors feel lonely in their daily lives. Because they don't get around as much as they used to, they often miss the daily human interactions they used to have and are grateful for every phone call, visit, letter, or email they receive. A homemade card from a caring person can really brighten a senior's day. It can help make them feel loved and remembered!

DESCRIPTION

Make colorful cards with words of encouragement for homebound seniors. 


ITEMS NEEDED

1. Card stock or paper

2. Paints, crayons, and/or markers

3. Stickers or other decorations to make the cards extra special

*Note: NO GLITTER OF ANY KIND PLEASE
