“Cards for the Courageous” Campaign to Continue Through September 11

Charleston, S.C.—As part of their 9/11 Day of Service, the Youth Volunteer Corps (YVC) of Charleston encourages local youth ages 5-25 and youth-serving agencies to participate in their “Cards for the Courageous” campaign by organizing and hosting a card making event to thank first responders, military members, and veterans for their service to the community and country. The campaign is currently underway and will continue through Tuesday, September 11, 2018.

Those interested in registering a group and serving as their team’s lead must first complete an online registration form, located on the YVC of Charleston website: http://yvccharleston.wixsite.com/yvccharleston.

During the event, participating team leaders must also use an attendance sheet to account for all youth participants.

Completed cards should be dropped off at the YVC of Charleston, located at 75 Calhoun Street, to be distributed to A Million Thanks and other local organizations that serve veterans and members of the military.

YVC of Charleston Program Coordinator Jennifer Gorham said, “Our goal for the ‘Cards for the Courageous’ campaign is to engage as many young community members as possible to create homemade tokens of appreciation for the courageous men and women who work to keep our community and our country safe.”
