This Thursday we wanted to highlight a special student at Creekview High School who did his senior project as a service project for CFVC. This young man, Stu Mixon, gave CFVC hundreds of handmade greeting cards for the women in our program to use for special occasions.

Stu’s family is an avid group of card makers, and so the project was a great way to get the family involved and a creative way to give back to our community. As we all know, a real, handwritten card is a novelty in this day and age, so when people receive one, they know that someone really took the time out to share their gratitude. Having access to something as beautiful and handmade as these cards is such a wonderful way for our clients to recognize those who help them. Also, writing someone a card to someone is a great reminder to be present in the little joys in life, even when faced with the situations that bring victims to our doors.
