Children Use Artistic Talent to Say “Thank You” to Service Members, Veterans
The annual American Red Cross Holidays for Heroes Campaign is in full swing, and Caring Cubs is making its annual contribution. The Northeast Ohio-based organization holds monthly events for children ages 2 and up, designed to teach various lessons of social responsibility. On Saturday, November 5th, dozens of children and their parents gathered in the Main Galleria at Cuyahoga Community College Western Campus in Parma to create cards to send to members of the military.
“It’s great to partner with organizations like Caring Cubs,” said Jessica Tischler, Regional Director of Service to the Armed Forces. “The cards they created will no doubt bring smiles to many faces this holiday season.”
Unlike previous campaigns, this year we hope to solicit cards that can be sent to service members and their families at every holiday during the year. We are asking for personal, heartfelt messages in every card, even if it means collecting fewer cards. See our earlier post, which includes a video highlighting the need for meaningful messages, as well as a list of items we are collecting for patients at the Louis Stokes Cleveland VA Medical Center.
