Each month I make walker/bed bags, port pillows, seat belt pillows, cards of encouragement and many other items for Walter Reed Medical Center. They are handed out to patients in 15 wards for them to use during their stay and keep once they are released. Each batch is mailed to an American Red Cross Volunteer in Maryland who consolidates the items and distributes them.
We could use some handmade notes that can be added to the handmade items. They can be any design with a written encouragement. They should not be larger than 3×5 inches so they can be added to the package containing handmade items. Below you will see an example of some amazing note cards sent in by Ms JoAnn.
Packages are mailed out monthly to the American Red Cross POC so they can be distributed to the patients at Walter Reed Medical Center. If you would like to sponsor a packages, you can do below.
Packages are mailed via USPS Priority Mail to Walter Reed Medical Center POC. We use Medium Flat Rate boxes 90% of the time. They are easy to use and can hold a lot of items. It also is easier for our POC to receive them. You can sponsor a package here.
