Operation We R Grateful
We are excited to take part in We R Memory Keepers Operation We R Grateful this summer! This is a fantastic way to be creative and show a soldier how grateful you for their service. There are two ways you can help:
1. Make handmade cards at home for soldiers to send to their loved ones and drop them off at the shop by August 1st. Theme suggestions: Thinking of you, love, miss you, anniversary, thank you, birthday, get well, and major holidays. Remember, these are blank, handmade cards that soldiers will send to their families to keep in touch. They may include sentiments but cannot have glitter and must say "Operation Write Home" somewhere on the back.
2. Join us for our Make & Give Class on Thursday, July 14th from 11:00am - 4:00pm. We will have misc. supplies and blank cards set up for you to use to make cards for soldiers. Please bring any materials you would like to use and share (a great way to use up older product and scraps) and also be sure to bring basics such as scissors, paper cutter, and adhesive. Make it a social event and bring some friends so you can all make cards for soldiers. We will have refreshments for you while you work.
If you cannot make it on Thursday, July 14th, feel free to come another day and make cards in the shop. Any time we are open and do not have a class going on, you are welcome to come use some supplies and make cards to leave for the soldiers.
Once we receive all the cards by August 1st, we will send them in and the store with the most cards sent in will receive prizes to give out to their customers! So not only are you doing something nice for someone else, but you may even win a prize!
Feel free to call the shop with any questions or for more details at 813-269-7946 and we hope to see you soon for our Make & Give class!
