INVOLVING CHILDREN IN THE COMMUNITY: Holiday Cards for Hero’s

Standard

December 2015 Community Project:

Holiday Cards for Hero’s is also a new project for us. This project is now organized by local Red Cross facilities, so if you want to participate, you just contact your area Red Cross office.

The kids decorated and wrote messages in holiday cards and we sent them in to the Red Cross.
