Caring For The Elderly Through Comforting Cards
We're teaming up with kids around Cumberland, MD to create works of art that inspire joy
Our agency knows that caring for the elderly involves more than just completing daily tasks. Turning everyday moments into smiles and being a reliable companion are also important! There are many seniors throughout Cumberland, MD that will be celebrating the holidays alone this year. To brighten their day and bring joy to their hearts, we're looking to those at the other end of the age spectrum. If your child is a master of the marker, a captain of the crayon, or a wizard of kind words we are looking for them to show off their talents in our Comforting Cards Contest!
