Things To Do While Quarantined

1.  Send cards or notes to Nursing homes or health care facilities or to parishioners you know that do not have computers & are not on the web.  Hope Creek is where Father Tony celebrated Mass weekly for the residents. Now the residents cannot even have visitors and cannot go outside.
You don't have to address a certain resident but maybe Dear Friend....then mail to various facilities.. Personnel will see that residents receive your cards & notes

2.  See attachment for those who can sew.
