Project 2: "Thank a Veteran for Veterans Day" with the American Red Cross of Northern Utah

Help assemble packages and thank-you cards with American Red Cross of Northern Utah for veterans. The American Red Cross Service to the Armed Forces will deliver cards and packages to VA Nursing Homes, VA Hospitals, and local VA Organization VFW’s, etc. Interested volunteers can drop-in during the designated time to assemble packages and decorate thank-you cards for veterans for Veteran's Day.

Help cut out storybook kits to go with their designated storybooks for the Ogden-Weber Community Action Partnership (OWCAP). Each volunteer will receive a bundle of images to cut out. The goal is to complete as many storybook kits as possible to provide each child with at least one book and kit to take home.

This is a drop-in service for those who are unable to travel off campus or have only a few moments of their time to give.
