Generations Join Forces

Some of our Giving Tree youth recently
visited with residents of Ft Washington
Estates ACTS Retirement Home to create
Peace & Smiles Boxes ® for pediatric patients
of area hospitals. The two generations
came together for great conversation and
an incredible meaningful community service
project helping those in need.
Military Appreciation Month

National Military Appreciation Month is celebrated every May and is a declaration that encourages us to say thank you. Thank you to the men and women who serve and to their families for sacrificing so much. 

Hand written notes and cards of gratitude from kids is a great way to say 'thank you'. Click below for some ideas of what to write in your card.
