Thank-you cards for veterans: volunteers needed

Volunteers are needed for the “Thank You Cards for Veterans” tables on Tuesday, Nov. 1, in the EUC Commons and Wednesday, Nov. 2, in the Dining Hall Lobby.

Students, faculty and staff will have an opportunity to sign thank you cards for veterans of WWII, Korean War, Vietnam War, Operation Desert Storm and Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom who are hospitalized in the Salisbury Veterans Administration (VA) Hospital.

You may stop by the table and sign as many cards as you would like.

For the second year, the Office of Campus Activities & Programs and the Student Veterans Association are co-sponsoring this “Thank You Cards for Veterans” service activity.

Volunteers are needed to staff tables from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day. Volunteers will communicate the purpose of the project (the sending of thank you cards to these veterans). They will also be setting out and collecting cards (the goal is about 5-7 signatures per card), and checking cards for appropriate language/messages.

To sign up as a volunteer, please go to this Google docs sign up sheet at https://docs.google.com/a/uncg.edu/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0Au-EWuJjDmexdGRFY3gtcVVsajBsOVA3MHZWeE9rNnc&hl=en_US. If you have any questions, contact Lisa McGuire, Assistant Director for Adult, Transfer, and Commuter Programs, at lmmcguir@uncg.edu or 4-3667.
