On January 23rd, Memphis Botanic Garden’s
Outreach program went to Martha’s Manor to make Valentine's cards for the troops
overseas. Martha’s Manor is a day program for women with developmental
disabilities. The ladies had a blast and completed 55 cards and envelopes. The
workroom looked like Valentine’s Day blew up in there!
Schilling Farms YMCA
is coordinating the effort to make sure the cards are sent in a timely fashion. They will be collecting cards through January 31st at their 1185 Schilling Blvd. E. location. If you'd like information about contributing to the Valentine's for Veterans, call 901.850.9622.
