Kids can help out Seniors Greetings at workshop this weekend

Kids can help spread a bit of holiday cheer to local seniors this weekend.

Ultimate Character Experience 2Seniors Greetings is hosting a card-making workshop for kids on Saturday (Dec. 1) at the Nourish Community Hub in Cannington from 1 to 4 p.m.

Launched by Cannington resident Jennifer Leece in 2012, the initiative sees volunteers make handmade cards for seniors living in area nursing homes.

More than 800 cards were distributed to residents in Brock, Scugog and Uxbridge last year alone.

Kids taking part will also have a chance to meet with one of the princess from The Ultimate Character Experience and be treated to refreshments and holiday snacks. The workshop also includes a screening of classic animated short ‘How the Grinch Stole Christmas.’

Registration costs $2.
