The PACE girls give back by joining Holidays for Heroes.
Talented girls from PACE give loving gifts to our soldiers.
Holidays for Heroes the PACE girls give beyond! What better way to usher in the holiday season than to find a way to give from the heart. Many of our military are away from their families for the season. Holidays for Heroes is a program that makes sure that they are not forgotten. Busy hands create care packages as countless angels make handmade holiday cards with personal messages. Last week the girls from PACE did their part to make sure to warm a soldiers heart during this special time.
Thirty five girls carefully constructed each card by hand. Die cut shapes, tinsel and tiny packages were layered on each one. Everyone working together to make sure that each card had every detail in order. All were displayed like works of art in a gallery straight from the heart.
I am always surprised and the thoughtfulness and caring these girls display and this was above and beyond. The messages in the cards were are personal and well though through. I am so proud of all their efforts to give selflessly to others.
The best part of the activity came when the cards were opened. Not a dry eye in the house. From those who have had such difficulties giving their heartfelt wishes to someone they have never met. I hope for all this season is that we will learn from them and take time to give beyond to others less fortunate.
