Make Cards for Seniors AT HOME VOLUNTEER PROJECT

While we're all stuck at home some people are feeling the stress of isolation. Many seniors are no longer able to see their regular friends and support network. You can send some extra good vibes with an e-card or an old fashioned paper card. 

For virtual greeting cards:
  • Go to canva.com Follow sign up or login instructions

  • Search ‘card’ templates in the search bar or create a card from scratch

  • Include a nice message such as:

    • “Just a friendly little hello from me to you”

    • “Hi there! Just felt like sharing a smile with you today”

    • "Just wanted to send some happy thoughts your way today”

    • “Take extra good care!”

    • “Sending good, healthy vibes your way”

    • “Wishing you well” “Sending hugs and love”

    • “Thinking of you at this time”

  • Have fun and be as creative as you would like!

  • Email your cards to people you know - and send a copy of the card to ys@scvolunteercenter.org - and we'll send them out to seniors in our network

Create a physical greeting card:
  • Create a card to show support for those feeling isolated

  • Use colored paper, stickers, markers, and other supplies to create an uplifting card.

  • Include a nice message such as:

    • “Just a friendly little hello from me to you”

    • “Hi there! Just felt like sharing a smile with you today”

    • “Just wanted to send some happy thoughts your way today”

    • “Take extra good care!”

    • “Sending good, healthy vibes your way”

    • “Wishing you well”

    • “Sending hugs and love”

    • “Thinking of you at this time”

      Drop off your cards at our office 
      1740 17th Ave, Santa Cruz, Monday through Thursday between 10AM-12PM or 1PM-4PM.
      Place in the bin in the downstairs lobby. Or set up a pick-up or drop-off location and time with the YouthSERVE Coordinator, ys@scvolunteercenter.org
