Can you please provide a little more direction -- do we bring blank cards and there will be specific people, or do we go there and write cards to specific people, or do we bring our own cards that we address without being specific?

Hi Anne,
If it is convenient for you to bring some blank cards with you, you are welcome to do so. We will also have blank card paper and markers available to make some hand-made cards.

We will try to have a list of names available in the morning at Nature's Alley, so that we can personalize the cards.

Last year, one of my personal highlights was when a young toddler and her family volunteered--the little one drew a circle, and then added some lines... and when it was all done, it was clearly a person, her first ever, according to her amazed mom!

Anne, thanks for the good questions--and if you think of any others, don't ckr4hesitate!!

Don't miss out on the discussion!

Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund

For the last 23 years, the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund has given away more than $4 million to local nonprofits serving children and families. When you make a donation, every dollar is automatically doubled, and 100% of the funds go directly to local programs. It’s a great way to ensure your charitable donations are working at home.
