Birthday & Holiday Cards
Making a card is an easy, fun and important way to contribute to the work that we do to decrease social isolation among seniors. Sometimes, a card from a DOROT volunteer is the only communication an older adult has on special occasions. Whether you’re looking for something to do on a rainy day or planning an activity for your community or corporate group, making a card is a great way to help brighten someone’s day.
Here are some tips to guarantee a successful birthday or holiday cardmaking project.
