To show our support for patients at Daniel Drake Center for Post-Acute Care who have limited contact with family and friends, we have been asked to send cards of encouragement.
Use a card you may have stored at home, or make a homemade card.
The cards need to be generic in nature. We will not have names. The cards shouldn’t be gender specific. Don’t use your full name.
DO NOT SEAL THEM IN AN ENVELOPE
PLEASE DO NOT USE CARDS THAT HAVE LANGUAGE ABOUT “GET WELL SOON”. Many of these patients will have a long stay in the hospital with uncertain recovery.
The card CAN INCLUDE:
I prayed for you today!
“Thoughts and prayers”
Here is an example:
My name is Jared. I’m sorry you are in the hospital. I hope this note brightens your day! Please know that as I wrote this card, I prayed for the person who would receive it. In fact, my whole family is thinking of you. My daughter wanted to include this drawing of flowers. I wish we could have sent real flowers, but we think this picture is pretty cool. We just wanted you to know that you are loved!
Anyone can do this! Be creative and make the wording your own. This is a great task for families to do together.
Please be sure to WASH YOUR HANDS before starting this project.
Please be sure to pray for the person who will receive the card!
Once your cards are complete, you can bring them to the office door at church (961 Nagel Road, Butler, KY) OR you can email firstname.lastname@example.org and someone will pick them up.
We will be taking the cards to Drake Hospital on Monday, April 6. We may do this again in the future.
