Healing Art for a Hero’s Heart

Thanks to the support of the Voorhees Township, the Wawa Foundation and the Camden County Cultural & Heritage Commission, this is a series of art work created specifically for our service members and veterans. This is our 2nd mission: operation Thank You.

In September 2020, the Artists of the Voorhees Arts Council partnered with the Military Support Group of New Jersey and proudly hand made watercolor cards with special Thank You messages and watercolor book marks for both deployed service members and our local Veterans. Cards were presented to Vets at the care box drop off event which this organization does monthly on the 2nd Thursday of each month. Cards and book marks were also placed in each of the care boxes being shipped to deployed service members who are currently protecting us in places all over the world. In October we donated items for the care packages and another dozen hand made thank you cards. Thanks to the Wawa Foundation grant and the support of Voorhees Township we were able to do this.
