Greencastle students make cards for patients

June 25, 2007

GREENCASTLE, Pa. - As part of their Character Counts! citizenship project, third-, fourth- and fifth-graders from Greencastle-Antrim Elementary School created 381 greeting cards for patients at Washington County Hospital.

Students Tea Smith-Zimmerman and Charlotte Thomas thought up the idea.

"We made get-well cards to make people feel better," Charlotte said. "Some people don't have any family. Maybe this will make them smile."

The cards were presented to the hospital by Tea and Charlotte between June 4 and 8 during Health System Week at the hospital.

Lorna Thomas, RNC and clinical manager at the hospital, said the greeting cards project was a wonderful idea.

"The cards brightened their day," she said. "It let them know that someone out there is thinking of them and hoping that they get better."
