Swain 4-H Kindness Cards

Here are the cards we already have, yay….but we still need more to get to 150! Be sure and send us your fun creations!

Take part in Swain County 4-H’s Kindness Cards Service Project and spread some joy and cheer to our neighbors.

Your card(s) will be distributed through the Swain County Senior Center’s weekly food delivery on May 19, 2020. Each Tuesday during the COVID-19 State of Emergency 150 people receive 7-14 meals each week. These meals are delivered to Swain County seniors and other shut-ins in our communities. See below for drop-off instructions.

Get started by grabbing a few supplies (paper, color pencils, crayons, and a little creativity). Design your own card or use the ideas listed below. Think happy and fun! Add a bright cheery message to your card(s) and sign your name (optional). You don’t have to be a member of 4-H to participate in the service project, but please write Swain County 4-H somewhere on the card. Thank you for joining us in this worthwhile effort!
