Cards for Veterans

We're hosting a Card Drive to benefit our longtime partner Help Heal Veterans!

We invite Elks and their family and friends to send a card to a recovering veteran or military member. These cards will then be added to a Help Heal Veterans Craft Kit and given to a veteran.

Craft kits are especially popular right now, and many veterans are missing the usual events that have had to be canceled. A card can really help them to feel connected and appreciated.

Rules & How to Donate

  • Cards can be handmade or manufactured.
  • Maximum size is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 (think of a folded sheet of paper or smaller).
  • The design and message are up to you. You can make a general card, or one specifically for Veterans Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Valentine's Day, etc.
  • Don’t seal the envelopes. HHV will read each message.

When you’re done, send your cards to HHV at the address below.

Help Heal Veterans, Inc.
36585 Penfield Lane
Winchester, CA 92596

This idea is adaptable! You can also deliver the cards to a local Veterans Home or VA Medical Center.
