New Haven’s National Honor Society (NHS) will be sending Valentine’s Day cards to the New Haven Care Center following the week of Feb. 12. These cards are meaningful to the residents and will be deeply appreciated.
Members of NHS ask that other students as well as staff members create, decorate, and send heart-warming cards to the senior citizens so that they can enjoy a great Valentine’s Day. NHS requests that these cards be written in clear, precise handwriting, big enough for the residents to read. As for the messages on the cards, they ask that all notes be friendly and appropriate. They can be vague but should still get the message across.
NHS asks that the cards be turned in by Wednesday, February 14th. Mrs. Oelrichs’ room will hold art supplies from the 5th to the 14th. Her room will be open from 7:30 to 8:00 A.M. for students to come in, decorate, or grab supplies to decorate at home.
Natalie Hoerstkamp, vice president of NHS, said, “I think making cards for the care center is a great way for NHS to reach out to our community. I know that some of the residents at the care center may not have a lot of visitors so I think they will really appreciate the gesture!”
Claire Meyer, junior and member of NHS, also commented about the event: “I think it is a wonderful idea to do something nice for them and hopefully it will make the residents happy.”
NHS is thrilled to be doing such a kind service to our community. They would like to thank all the students, teachers, and staff members who are helping make the event possible. It not only means a lot to NHS and New Haven High, but to our residents at the New Haven Care Center.
