Check out this message from some fellow CPS Students taking action:
Our names are Phoebe Koehler and Sinead O’Sullivan, and we are writing about our organization called One Card at a Time. We are 8th graders at Whitney Young Academic Center and Taft Academic Center, respectively. Our voluntary association distributes cards made by elementary school students in Chicago to local elderly facilities to combat the loneliness that many residents of these shelters feel during these times. Our mission is to brighten the day of as many senior citizens as we can one card at a time. Our poster, which includes sample cards that we wrote, along with simple instructions for how to participate, is below. If you would like to see examples of other cards that we have received or if you would like more information about One Card at a Time, please visit our website at onecardatatime.com.
Thanks in advance for helping us make a difference one card at a time.
Phoebe and Sinead
