Greeting Cards for Seniors

This Month's Organization:

Bring Smiles to Seniors works to show love and support to seniors, particularly those who no longer have a family. The organization collects and delivers greeting cards to residents of nursing homes and assisted or independent living communities, and seniors who have difficulty leaving their homes.

Instructions

Create a handmade card that either has a message written inside or is blank. Blank donated cards will be used in cooperation with Bring Smiles to Seniors' school, civic, and corporate partners.

You may sign your name to the card if you wish, but please leave the card unsealed.

Since Bring Smiles to Seniors doesn't collect personal information on the people they serve, general "thinking of you" cards are the most useful.

Project Type:

Card making or stamping.

Supplies You'll Need:

  • Paper or cardstock
  • Your choice of markers, stamps, or decorative embellishments

Deadline:

Drop your finished project off by May 31, 2020, during regular hours at any Greene County Public Library location.

To protect your donated card during delivery, please place it in a clean plastic zipper bag.

Card Making Basics

Creating handmade greeting cards is a wonderful craft for anyone who likes to correspond, share their artistry, or cheer up someone in need.
