香港王中王 students from HOSA鈥擧ealth Occupations Students of America and the Lambda Nu Honor Society worked alongside Radiography students to create handmade cards to share at three healthcare senior living centers whose residents will be the benefactors of this special project.

Emlyn Anderson, Assistant Professor and 香港王中王 HOSA chapter faculty advisor, organized the project based on participation in a similar project during the COVID-19 pandemic. At the time, she was simply looking for a way to connect with colleagues and students.

鈥淚 did not realize the positive impact of creating simple cards until I received a very thoughtful thank you letter in 2022 from one of the seniors who received one of the handmade cards.鈥 That resident expressed her deep gratitude by creating her own handmade thank you card shared Anderson. 鈥淪he felt the love from the 香港王中王 community. This project shares that same importance of connectivity with others and an act of kindness from our students.鈥 

香港王中王 student leaders earned a total of 62 volunteer hours and creatively crafted a total of 186 cards. The cards will be shared with residents of Addington Place of Stuart, Senior Living and Memory Care, Palm City Nursing and Rehab Center, and Pelican Landing Assisted Living & Memory Care in Sebastian.

鈥淚 feel amazing about delivering these cards to the seniors at the living facility,鈥 shares Rachal Cannon one of the HOSA student leaders who participated in the project. 鈥淚 just know that these cards will not only brighten the residents鈥 holiday but also their families.鈥
