4-H Call to Action: Spread Kindness

— Written By

We are over halfway to meeting our goal of delivering greeting cards to all Madison County senior care residents. Pictured below: Activity Director Sherry Chandler received 87 cards for the residents of Elderberry Health Care. Thank you to all our 4-H families who made these thoughtful, creative cards!

We need 68 more cards to reach our neighbors at Madison Manor Nursing Center in Mars Hill.

If you missed the window to mail cards earlier this month – please consider making a few cards this week! The project is described below.

In a time of “social distancing” dictated by reducing the spread of coronavirus, our family and neighbors in nursing homes have been denied visitors. It can be a lonely and scary time – and it is now that we need our community more than ever!

Help us spread kindness to our neighbors by making greeting cards. The cards should be bright with a simple “thinking of you” message. We are requesting the personal touch of homemade cards – markers and construction paper is fine! Please sign each card with your first name only and Madison County 4-H.

Cards should be mailed by April 20 to 

Madison County 4-H

258 Carolina Lane

Marshall, NC 28753

Save stamps by stuffing one envelope full of cards! We will deliver all the cards to the nursing home facility at once.

In 4-H, we pledge our “Hands to Larger Service.” We welcome anyone who would like to contribute to this project!
