A special thank you for everyone who participated in the Hospice Card Making event on September 23, 2016.    Eighty cards were made.   There were 3 different Thank You cards, 3 different Patriotic cards, and 2 different Sympathy cards.  The cards and envelopes were delivered on September 26.   We received a thank you email letter from the Cleveland Clinic Volunteer Coordinator, Koula Callas.   

I plan to host this event in the Spring.   There are two ways to participate:  Prepare for assembly 10 cards to be shared with others or yourself to finish.  OR  Sponsor 10 cards for $20 to be made by me to assemble yourself or by others.

HOSPICE CARD MAKING EVENT

FRIDAY, September 23, 2016 at 6:30p

Hospice Card Making Event. My give back to the community project is making cards for the Cleveland Clinic Hospice at Home group. I have been doing this for two years. The Hospice at Home group mails out about 100 cards a month. The cards are three types: sympathy, patriotic, and thank you.

The Hospice at Home group is always seeking hand-made cards. They share a more personal touch to a person grieving a loved one, an ill veteran receiving a note of appreciation and a grateful thank you for a kindness given.

Please join us for an evening making cards for the Hospice at Home group. There are two ways you can join us. 1) Prepare for assembly 10 cards to be shared with others to finish OR 2) Paid fee of $20 and I will prepare 10 cards to be shared with others to finish.

We will have appetizers, ice-cold water, soft drinks and wine. If you would like, please feel free to bring an appetizer to share.
