Students at St. Jude Catholic School make Christmas cards to be delivered to senior homes

Local News

Students in the area made something special for seniors this holiday season.

This activity was organized by Comfort Keepers. Comfort Keepers is a caregiving service providing in home care services for elderly care, companion care, respite care, Alzheimer’s and Dementia care. 

They asked students to make personalized Christmas cards that were delivered to senior home facilities.

The owners said that although Christmas cards have now turned more into electronic messages, cards are still specially meaningful for the third generation.

“We all get fewer and fewer Christmas cards every year now that we’re inundated with technology and that’s a great way for many of us to communicate but it isn’t necessarily a language that seniors understand,” said Julie Carnegie Reams, Comfort Keepers Co-Owner.

The organization makes cards for seniors all year round for most holidays.
