Ringling College Students Create Cards for Veterans Served by Goodwill

The Giving Coast

SRQ DAILY MONDAY BUSINESS EDITION MONDAY NOV 16, 2020

Upon hearing from Margie Genter, Goodwill Manasota’s vice president of mission services, 10 Ringling students joined Genter in a separate “meeting room” to implement the project: creating cards for veterans. Over the course of the session, Genter and the students chatted about their lives and how college was going so far. By the end of the session, the students had beautiful cards to display; some of them included their school P.O. box address on the card in case the recipient wanted a pen pal. “While this year has proven to be unique, I wanted to make sure that I still offered local nonprofit partner support,” said Susan Saulnier, Ringling College’s coordinator of student volunteerism and service-learning. “In a time when physically going to help someone is restricted, we are lucky to have technology to help us stay connected. We hope that through ‘thank you’ and ‘thinking of you’ cards, we will brighten someone’s day.”
