The Yale Year of Service Senior Card Craft Project 2021 is a virtual family activity. You are encouraged to create decorative cards at home with your family that will be shared with elderly residents who are memory impaired and either living in Senior Living facilities, your neighborhood or to your own relatives.
The cards can be for any occasion – Happy Birthday, Thinking of You, tell a Joke, draw a picture… using materials you have on hand… paper, markers, crayons, stickers, glitter - whatever you think will bring a smile or cheer to a Senior who is unable to get out and about.
Please take pictures of your creations (and creators) and share them on social media using #YaleDayOfService and #YaleAlumni. If you are in the New Haven area, I would be happy to collect your cards and deliver them to a local Senior facility. Thanks for helping brighten a Senior’s day!
