Holidays are the times for connecting with family, friends, and the community at large. The Holiday Card Project provides volunteers with opportunities to let people in need know that they haven’t been forgotten and to brighten their lives by improving their day with a card! In order to encourage creativity, very few guidelines are imposed on the making of handmade greeting cards. The cards may be almost any size, and the media used can be as simple as colored markers. Some people use combinations of media such as markers, rubber stamps, images cut from used or surplus store-bought greeting cards, cut-out computer-generated images, pasted bits of ribbon or felt, etc. Here are a few general suggestions on other matters: Ideally the cards should be able to stand up if placed on a table, nightstand, etc. Sentiments that imply that the recipients' circumstances are less than ideal (e.g., "Cheer Up!", "You are not forgotten", etc.) should be avoided. Greetings should be generic so that they can be appropriate to almost anyone. (For example, a Christmas card that says "Merry Christmas" on the front and "Wishing you all the joy of the season") Please don't enclose or attach candy to the cards. Cards should be signed by the persons making them. Any signature should probably include just the signer's first name or first names of group... If you want to create some holiday cards or donate some holiday supplies for our children and families please mail them to: Children’s Home Society Attn: Julie Robinson 3333 Forest Hill Blvd. West Palm Beach, FL 33406. Thank you very much for your acts of kindness! We can also provide you with volunteer hours!
CHS leads the way in developing and delivering solutions that drastically change life trajectories for children and families.
We’re different because we invest in lasting solutions, not short-term fixes. We empower children and families to cross bridges that lead to success.
At CHS, we are reimagining the future of foster care. We’re creating a world where children are safer - where they don’t enter foster care in the first place. We’re addressing the root causes that lead to dangerous situations ... and we’re implementing one-of-a-kind solutions that will change the future for children, families and communities.
Together, We do good.
