HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
We would be most honored to have volunteers make greeting cards for our hospice patients/families to brighten their day! Simply apply the steps below in whatever way works best for!
HERE ARE THE EASY STEPS for GREETING CARDS!
1. Create your card: blank cards and envelopes are very affordable and
found at Staples, Office Max, Wal-Mart, sometimes even .99 Stores! Use Ink, pencil, paint,
crayon, photos, stamps, collage (whatever you like), etc. to design something
for the front of each card.
Holiday-themed images (snow, trees, gingerbread men, etc.), animals, flowers,
mountains, ANYTHING cheerful and heart-felt work great.
Poetry, phrases, song lyrics, etc., are all lovely ideas as well. You might want to refrain from religious phrases, and such words as "get better soon,’ etc.
Inside the card, something simple like:
"Thinking of you,
Love, your Volunteer Artist, (your name)"
2. I have attached, below, a Volunteer Artist Application and Art Documentation form that you can
fill out when you make a card/s.
3. When your card(s) is complete, please snail-mail it and your
filled-out documentation form (attached) to:
High Quality Hospice
21707 Hawthorne Blvd #304, Torrance, CA 90503Attn: Gerri Gonzales, Volunteer Coordinator
Phone: (310) 543-467
4. I will create a file for you, with your application and copies of your work. Our nurses present the cards when they visit the patient, and, I will let you know how much your patient loves your work!
I hope this is something you would like to do!!!!
THANK YOU AND BLESSINGS,
Gerri and the High Quality Team
