They stopped by the craft table between classes, or during their lunch hour. Sometimes these Lakeland College students came in groups; sometimes they sat down and worked alone. They cut, glued, crafted and wrote heartfelt messages of hope and love.
And when the one-day Lakeland College Valentine’s Day card-crafting campaign came to an end, there were 104 beautiful, unique handmade cards ready for delivery to the Plymouth, Wis. headquarters of Project Angel Hugs, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the emotional support of children with cancer. Project Angel Hugs will mail the Lakeland cards to cancer-stricken children all over the nation.
“Our students always go above and beyond,” said Sally Bork, Lakeland College’s interim director of student activities. “Project Angel Hugs is a local organization that’s doing great things, and we’re very proud of our students for being so enthusiastic about helping.”
