S.T.A.R. Craft Night

Night of Crafts and Service

On Monday night, February 11th, many members of S.T.A.R. came together to try and make the lives of the people who came before us just a little bit happier. In association with America Reads* America Serves, S.T.A.R. created an assortment of Valentine’s Day cards for the residents of Chapin Home for the Aging. These cards, along with those created in an earlier event by AR*AS are being hand delivered this week by our own School of Education students.

Our S.T.A.R. Members spent the evening with crayons, markers, construction paper, and all sorts of craft materials along with some cake and snacks. Everybody was able to relax from a hectic start of the semester and unwind doing something kind for somebody else.

Knowing that many of the residents of this Home for the Aging will appreciate a handmade card, members were excited to put their creativity to use when making many of these cards. Many cards included poems, pop-up images, and beautiful hand drawn pictures from our students. This event was a great way for S.T.A.R. members to come together and have a nice relaxing night bonding with each other and helping out our local community.

  1. The cards were a big hit at Chapin! Although I was unable to attend craft night, the combined efforts of STAR and AR*AS really paid off! :)
