Thanksgiving Greetings

Our students created Thanksgiving greeting cards for patients of Hospice of the Sacred Heart. The art project was under the supervision of art instructor Sarah Strong! The cards are included with meals that are prepared by Mansour’s Market, then packaged and delivered by hospice staff members and volunteers on Thanksgiving Day. It’s a great feeling to help others!
