Thank You, Neighbors! - Community Helpers Thank You Card

This week is all about thanking our community helpers! Now more than ever I am grateful for the helpers who are keeping essential services up and running in our community. I keep thinking about all the people who are helping us right now, from delivery drivers making sure our packages arrive, to grocery store employees who are working as fast as they can to restock shelves, to first responders and hospital workers who are helping fight coronavirus/COVID-19 each day.

Let’s work together to thank these community helpers. You and your kids can learn more about community helpers and what their roles are in the community by checking out these videos from our partnering station WUCF in Florida.

We have designed a thank you card so you and your kids can show your appreciation for the helpers in our community! Print this card out or create your own on a blank sheet of paper.

Activity instructions:

  1. Print the Community Helpers Thank You Card. Remember to print on both sides and flip on short edge!
  2. Have your child trace their hand on the inside page, to give the community helpers “a hand”
  3. Write a special message to your community helper on the inside page opposite the handprint
  4. Color, decorate, and sign the card!

Since we are self-isolating/quarantining right now, you can share these cards a few different ways:

  1. Take a photo of the completed thank you cards and post them on a Facebook page of a local community helper group. I’ll link to a few here: Unified Fire Authority, Intermountain Healthcare, Unified Police Department, Harmons Grocery Store, Walmart (here’s the one on 900 East), FedEx. You can also find your child’s school on Facebook, your local fire station, hospital, and police station.
  2. Mail these cards to your local helpers by searching for their address online and dropping it in your mailbox.
  3. Leave the cards outside or in your mailbox for your mail carrier or your delivery drivers.
  4. Drop the grocery store cards off next time you go out to get groceries.
