On December 8, 2017, Middle College students in the “Student Life & Community Engagement” class expressed their want to give back in a way that would be meaningful for young children and decided to use their artistic abilities to create holiday cards. The Middle College students gathered together and created over 100 cards, in multiple languages (English, Spanish, Tagalog, Arabic) for children that will be spending the upcoming holidays in the hospital. The cards that were created will be distributed to hospitals around the bay area along with the Ronald McDonald houses for children.
“An uplifting card made from the heart can truly brighten a child’s day, make them feel special, and remind them they are not forgotten because they are sick during the holiday season,” Hailey Center said.
