Cards for Seniors

CCWC - Cards for Seniors - Sending sunshine your wayWe’re collecting cards for isolated seniors — and you can help!

The CCWC will be collecting and delivering cards and small treats to Candia seniors in local nursing homes and to individual homes. This is a new project that we hope will provide some comfort for our senior residents that have been sheltering in places for many months.

Cards can be dropped off at the library in a collection box outside by the book drop.

Types of Cards Accepted

  • Handmade, store bought and re-purposed greeting cards
  • Individual envelopes are not necessary. If envelopes are included, please leave them unsealed.

Options to include with cards

  • Short notes or children's artwork

Signature Options

  • Leave blank, your first name and last initial, group/club/company name

Creation Tips

  • Re-purpose old calendar, greeting card and magazine cut outs
  • General “thinking of you” or holiday themes
  • Positive messaging focusing on comfort and joy
  • Avoid anything negative or referring to being alone, isolated, lonely or forgotten
  • Include well wishes, words of encouragement, poems and quotes
  • Share something light and personal — information about a hobby, a pet, the season, school, kids’ activities, etc.
