Ways to Give

Holiday Cards

If you are at a loss for time and money, sending holiday cards to the elderly is a great way to bring them company.

Let one of our Meals on Wheels seniors or adult with disabilities know that their community cares about them. Especially now during the COVID-19 crisis, cards can help lift spirits as many seniors are isolated and alone. We will pack your hand-made winter holiday cards into our clients’ meals delivered by one of our volunteer Meals on Wheels drivers throughout this holiday season. So, kick back with your family or virtually with friends or co-workers and get creative! You will have fun tapping into your artistic side, and feel good, too, knowing that you are making a difference in the lives of so many seniors in our community.

GUIDELINES •

Cards must be small enough to fit into our delivery bags – see dimensions below.

  • Fold-over note cardstock (finished size: 4¼ x 5½) or an 8½ x 11 piece of paper can be folded in half and in half again (for stability and a finished size of 4¼ x 5½).
  • Do not use glitter, macaroni, or other types of decoration that can easily come off.
  • We do NOT need envelopes for the cards.
  • Remember, seniors often have poor eyesight. Keep print large and avoid cursive.
  • Do not sign the cards, not even with your school, organization, or company name. It confuses many of our senior clients.
  • Please avoid irony, slang, puns, or jokey cards as it may confuse our clients. Think of kind, sincere, and joyful messages and images.

Examples: Best wishes for a lovely holiday season * We’re thinking of you. * Wishing you comfort, joy and hope in the year ahead.* Happy Holidays and warm wishes. * Wishing you a safe holiday season.* Happy New Year! *To a holiday season filled with good health and good cheer.* Warm holiday wishes!* New Year – New beginnings

No matter your means, there is some way to help the elderly in our community this holiday season and spread the holiday cheer.
