Project “Moorestown Send a Smile”
While home, consider making a card for one of our Moorestown older citizens who cannot get out. They could use a little joy in the form of a card. Calling all artists! We are hoping that any child or adult who wants to make a homemade card will do so! This is a great art project for the younger students and a great way to teach empathy and show their support of the seniors in town. Two collection bins are set up in town – one at the entrance to the Moorestown Library (111 W. Second Street) and one at 9 Sycamore Lane in Moorestown Hunt.
Important: Cards can be store bought or homemade. Cards must be able to fit into a 6 x 9 inch envelope. Recommended size is folding a piece of 8.5 x 11 copy paper in half!
