greeting card, hat, gloves, scarf, pet crate mat or blanket, braided rope tug toy for dogs
For greeting cards: Send messages along the lines of “Happy Hello,” “Thinking of You,” “Sending Sunshine,” “Sending Smiles,” and other general, positive sentiments. Birthday cards are also encouraged. Keep the inside of the card blank. Keep embellishments secure and no glitter that will fall off (glitter glue that sticks securely is ok). Include an envelope. These are meant to used in place of professional greeting cards, so please use paper craft skills and refrain from using lower quality materials like construction paper.
For hats, gloves, and scarves: Any size, any color is great. All sizes (adult and juvenile) and lots of variety in style and color schemes bring joy to the residents. Use yarn that is easy care.
