Holiday cheer for veterans--handmade cards by DC children

DC resident Sarah Gabriel is collecting handmade holiday cards created by children from across the city to deliver to the residents of DC's Old Soldier's Home/Armed Forces Retirement Home (Old Soldier's Home/Armed Forces Retirement Home (Wikipedia)).   Sarah's message on the subject:
If you know a child, daycare, or school that would be interested in making holiday cards to bring some joy to these individuals who have spent years or a lifetime in service to all of us, please spread the word and help us hand out a card to every retired soldier we can this holiday season.

... The deadline for this small but meaningful way to help our kids experience the joy of giving back in our own backyard is December 15th. If you would like to be involved in the delivery of cards or need more information to make your holiday card brighten the day of a member of our community please send me an email!
