Community Action - 11.22: Holiday Card Workshop for Troops Serving Overseas


General Description

As we inch closer to the Thanksgiving weekend, now is the perfect opportunity to take a moment to stop and think about what we are thankful for. Our holiday card workshop is a great way to put those thoughts into action as we plan to send 100's of holiday cards to troops serving overseas to bring a piece of encouragement and hope to them during the holiday season.


Stop by and create as many cards as you would like at our open house. All materials will be provided, just bring your creativity and friends. Treats, hot drinks, and holiday music will be provided to make this a fun and festive way to kick off the holiday season.
