With last year’s drive being so successful, the Recreation Centers of Sun City West is again planning to collect cards to ensure our neighbors in local care facilities and hospitals aren’t forgotten during the holidays.
The Holiday Card Drive will run from 8 a.m. Thursday, Dec. 1, to noon on Friday, Dec. 9. To donate a card, simply write a kind, cheerful message on the inside of a holiday card. Include a festive greeting on the envelope. Do not seal it.
Beginning Dec. 1, we will have collection sites available at all four recreation centers and the R.H. Johnson Library. Please be sure to have your cards dropped off before noon Dec. 9. Although blank cards may be dropped off, we prefer you fill them out with a handwritten message.
After all the cards are collected, Rec Centers staff will separate them to ensure we have enough for each facility. The locations whose residents will be the recipients of your kindness are: Brookdale, Solstice, Grandview Care Center, Avista, Sun City West Assisted Living, and Heritage Legacy. Both Del E. Webb and Boswell hospitals also will receive cards. Feedback from the locations last year was very positive and they are looking forward to this year’s drop off, with some already calling to ensure we are doing it again!
Thank you in advance for those of you able to make Christmas, Hanukkah and the holiday seasons cheerful and bright for our neighbors in Sun City West!
I think this is a marvelous idea. I hope the inside of the cards are checked before giving them out.With our world today, better safe than sorry.
Beverly, we do check the cards before sending on to the facilities.
A wonderful tradition ! Let us continue it always…every year.
What a great way to use the many cards we receive in the mail from different non-profits wanting donations!
