Youth4Better's Washington Chapter, directed by Joshua Jaiyeola, recently created handmade cards to send out to veteran homes during the holidays.
The effort was part of the Holiday Cards for Veterans Campaign, which has produced a total of 941 handwritten cards in 2021. The campaign aims to support veterans during the holidays, who are often living alone during these times of celebration.
The Washington Chapter has been a part of Youth4Better since June of 2021 and has sense led and participated in several nationwide campaigns. We are thankful and proud of the work they have accomplished.
We hope that these cards found their way to the meal trays of veterans on holidays, and hopefully, they will put smiles on the faces of these retirees. But most of all, we believe that this small act of kindness will make our volunteers better members of society who, by spending hours on creating these cards, recognize the sacrifice of these individuals.
