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 Youth Services Board to distribute them to the Avon Senior Citizen Center, assisted living facilities, and local oncology centers.

The three theme choices this session of card making are: Winter, Christmas, or Hanukkah. 

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

Who can make cards? The volunteer card making program is open to children, teens, adults, and families.
