Encouragement Cards For Level Up Clients

We're looking for volunteers to create homemade encouragement cards for our Level Up Clients. Cards should include encouraging messages like, "You can do it!" "Keep up the great work!", "You're almost there!", "You can do anything you put your mind to.", etc.

Feel free to get as creative as you'd like with your cards. They can include drawings, glitter, stickers, or simple encouraging messages. This is a remote project, meaning it can be done at home or at your workplace. It's also a family-friendly project. All you need are things like paper, markers, crayons, and any other craft supplies you want.

Drop off completed cards at Lake Area United Way (221 W. Ridge Rd. Griffith, IN 46319). There is a mail slot in the front door. Simply slip your cards through the slot into bin and we'll pass out the cards throughout the year whenever our clients need a pick-me-up.

Level Up is a program that helps struggling, working families gain access to job training, financial education, assistance with child care, and access to barrier buster funding to help them overcome the obstacles that are preventing them from moving into better paying jobs and becoming more financially secure. Participants in the program often face a lot of stress and challenges along the way to financial stability. This sometimes leads to them being overwhelmed and feeling like they can't accomplish their goals.

The encouragement cards you help us create will be used to help cheer our clients on and give them a little extra motivation when things get tough. Many of our clients don't have strong support systems to encourage them, so seeing that the community as a whole is behind them and wants them to succeed will help boost their confidence and motivate them to keep working towards their goals.
