For August Retreat, Club Scrap hosted a very special card drive for Operation Write Home. (If you're not familiar with OWH, you can go HERE for more information.) Each Retreat attendee was asked to bring along handmade cards they created to donate to this very worthy cause. And boy did they come through!!!!
Operation Write Home has some pretty high standards when it comes to the cards they send to heroes all over the world, so we wanted to make sure every card met those guidelines. Confirming each card was stamped with the OWH logo on the back, and making sure every card had its own envelope using the proper "tuck" method was a big job, and thankfully, we had some helpers on hand who were up for the task!

Tricia's daughter, Emily, and Kay's daughter, Marilee, both happened to be in the office last Thursday, and they both took on the task with gusto.
They even sorted the cards by occasion, to make things easier on the OWH volunteers who'll further process the cards. Way to go, ladies!!!
Thanks to the creativity and generosity of our August Retreat attendees, and to the hard work of these fine young ladies, we were able to donate 731 greeting cards, and 3 "Any Hero" cards to Operation Write Home. Yay!

Have a great week!
