Volunteer to make Spring-themed cards for senior citizens!

Volunteering opportunity!

The Avon Library and the Avon Youth Services Bureau will provide card making supplies for you to make cards for the senior citizens of Avon to bring them cheer and hope. We are partnering with the Avon Senior Citizen Center to safely distribute cards to local seniors.

The theme of this session of card making is SPRING and “Thinking of You.”

Please use your creativity and please use your words to spread some cheer for senior citizens. Send messages of support and encouragement.
