Life 96.5 and YOU made a difference during February by teaming up with Compassionate Care Hospice for a special Heart Month project: crafting unique, handmade greeting cards to be used by families and caregivers for their patients in hospice care.
Are you ready for this? On February 26th the total number made at the all-day drop-in event at R Scrapbook Store was 1,692 cards!
Throughout the day, 100 people came in from Iowa, Minnesota, and South Dakota. Students from O’Gorman High and Memorial Middle School were there, as well as from Dell Rapids. Some people even used their work volunteer time off to spend it with us—from Wells Fargo and First National Bank. And others brought their children in to share a little love for someone who could use it. All told, 274 hours were donated on that day.
The cards will serve patients living in the 45 counties across South Dakota and Minnesota that Compassionate Care Hospice serves.
We couldn’t have done it without YOU! Thank you for sharing donated card making supplies, your time, your talent, and heart and for being the hands and feet of Jesus!
