Other Opportunities

HLNDV Community Service Announcement: 
 
Community Service – #HLNDVCares for Cancer Patients Project
 
– A family-friendly virtual project preparing notes for cancer patients at a local medical center (MD Anderson Cancer Center at Cooper – Camden, NJ). Our goal is 1,000 notes. If we surpass our goal, we’ll look to another center to support. 
 
– We are requesting hand-written notes of Hope, Courage, Strength for patients during their treatment. Phrases such as “Keep fighting” / “You can beat this” / “Hope is stronger than fear”. Please allow the children to use their imagination when preparing cards. (They may have a story to tell – “My Grammy beat cancer, you can too!”) Feel free to decorate with stickers, drawings, etc.
 
– If signing card – first name only. Please don’t use HLNDV or ACHE (too confusing) in your signature. We’ll make sure recipients know cards are from our members and families.
 
– Cards may be on large index notes, blank cards, etc. Please no “Get Well” or “Religious” cards. 
 
– Cards may be mailed to M Fansler, 60 Barren Road, Media, PA 19063 or dropped off with Tammy Huster, AVP Nursing at Cooper Health. We will collect cards through April 30, 2021. 
 
 
– We welcome you to share pictures of your cards on Social Media with the tag #HLNDVCares.
