November Teen Service Club Project
It's time to get in the giving spirit with the new Teen Service Club project: holiday greeting cards for Henderson senior centers. Kits for this project will be available beginning November 2 via curbside pickup at each Henderson Libraries location.
Youth ages 11-17 can use their artistic skills to create holiday greeting cards that will go to a senior citizen when they receive Meals on Wheels or another delivery from the Downtown Senior Center and the Heritage Park Senior Center. Get creative, and color, collage, decoupage, paint, or use anything else to make this holiday a little more special for the person who will receive your card. Please do not sign cards with personal names.
Please take your time on this project to make it extra special. Each kit includes materials to make 2 cards, along with some decorative items to get you started. You will receive 30 minutes of service time for each card. Turn in completed cards by November 30, 2020.
Special instructions for 2020: Kits will be distributed via curbside pickup — 1 kit per teen. Completed projects should be returned via curbside pickup, with completed cards in the bag with a return slip filled out and attached (the slips are included in the kits). Another kit may be taken upon return of the previous kit. All completed projects will be held until November 30, and service time will be calculated based upon the return slips for each participant. A letter detailing the service hours will be sent via email to the participant after November 30.
Henderson Libraries partners with the City of Henderson Park District Meals on Wheels program to coordinate delivery of the holiday cards to seniors.
