Announcing A New Volunteer and Two More Children's Hospitals!
We are very happy to announce an additional volunteer has joined the SAS4Kids family and she will be bringing your cards to kids in two children's hospitals in Cincinnati, Ohio. Kris Adams has been bringing her own cards to a local children's hospital and recently contacted us to ask if she could volunteer and we were thrilled. Her smiling face is on the side of our blog now and the address to send your cards to is: Kris Adams 1057 Valley Wood Drive Batavia, OH 45103 Her hospitals are: Shriner's Hospital for Children and Cincinnati Children's Medical Hospital Center, both in Cincinnati, OH. We asked Kris to share some info about herself and she sent this:
I am Kris Adams and I work as a full time corporate recruiter
for a manufacturing company, a mom to 2 grown kids and I love to craft! Whether
it has been making dollhouses, cross-stitch, ceramics, quilting or stamping,
crafting is one of my favorite past times. I have a room dedicated to my
crafts and could probably expand to other rooms if I had the chance! I was very
excited to find SAS4Kids so I could share my joy of making cards and hopefully
put a smile on as many kids’ faces as I can. I have always lived in
Cincinnati and am lucky enough that both kids still live in the area. My
favorite vacation spot is Panama City Beach, FL - it is my home away from home
and I visit at least once a year.
Kris will put her current needs in the page for that soon (as do all the volunteers so always be sure to check that before sending in your cards), but to start she will need cards for upcoming holidays and every day cheer cards as well as birthday and thank yous.
We do not post here unless we have news or changes, but Send a Smile 4 Kids is still very much active with challenges every month and many volunteers delivering your cards to our kids. Thanks for all you have done and continue to do to help put smiles on kids faces!
