Martha (Marty) Carr, Hospice Volunteer/Bereavement Coordinator in Northeast PA, is leading a group of sunshine spreaders with her Sunshine Letter Program and event.
On Thursday evening, September 17, 2015, it was standing room only at Origins Gallery in downtown Stroudsburg, PA, where the tiniest of community members, East Stroudsburg University students, and seasoned letter writers joined together in an small act of kindness to bring smiles to hospice patients with sunshine letters! Sunshine letters are short, uplifting notes or hand-drawn, decorated cards for hospice patients.
102 sunshine letters were collected at Thursday evening’s event! Can you imagine the hundreds of smiles these letters are going to spread?
Guests were entertained by Theater Studio: A Confidence Theater. These amazing young ladies wrote and performed a play especially for Celtic and the event.
Local artist Melissa Benzinger-McGlynn participated by using her special talents to create beautiful Fall greetings for our hospice patients.
Thank you to all who participated!
