Cards for the Troops

We are working with America's Adopt a Soldier to send 1000 care packages to our troops stationed overseas. One of the items they have requested for the packages are Christmas cards that the troops can send back home to their families. Plan to join us anytime between 10-8 on Thursday, October 7 to help make a card. We always have a FREE card make-and-take on Thursdays, but for this event, you will be making two cards - one you may take home with you and the other you will leave for the care packages (although you are certainly welcome to leave both cards if you wish). We appreciate Memory Box for helping to provide supplies for this event, and we appreciate your help. And, we absolutely appreciate our service men and women! You are welcome to drop off other cards for them to send home to family as well. They specifically requested birthday/miss you/thinking of you (in addition to Christmas) cards, and envelopes would be especially helpful. If you are dropping off cards, remember that flat is best - try to restrain yourself from too many embellishments. Thanks and see you Thursday!
