CARING FOR AMERICA
March 25th, 2020
My Dear Patriot Lady Warriors,
By now most of us have spent more time confined to our homes than we ever expected. So, here is an ingenious idea that you might find worthy as part of your Caring for America Activities.
Let’s do something to encourage or inspire our own communities in this temporary time of uncertainty. Let’s put our creative heads together and come up with ideas that will underscore our love for community and compassion for our neighbors. For example, if you have a hospital in your area, consider surprising its harried and overworked staff with a pizza delivery. Create colorful greeting cards or send chocolates to one of your local nursing homes. Are you a genius at the sewing machine? JoAnn Fabrics has patterns and precut fabric for the asking to make medical masks.
More than ever, this is the time to think out of the box. And nobody can do that better than you.
So, let’s put our minds to work now, and unleash as many exciting ideas as we can.
One more thing. Remember to include a nice card identifying your group. Let people know who you wonderful Republican Women are, and that you represent the Illinois Federation of Republican Women.
Thank you for your leadership and your willingness to help.
Yours in Liberty,
Jayne Lehman Raef,
President, Illinois Federation of Republican Women
