The past few months have been difficult and stressful in many ways, and we have also seen amazing warmth and kindness in the Trinity and Hartford community amidst the Covid pandemic. Earlier this month, Archana Adhikari ’22 put together a template to send thank you cards to grocery store employees in the Hartford area, and this week Claire Pritchard put together a template to thank our health care workers. These essential staff are putting themselves on the front lines every day to make sure our family, friends and neighbors are healing and cared for to the best of their ability. We encourage you to use the template below to send cards to Hartford area health care workers, or to health care workers in your community. We also welcome additions and corrections to this list, which can be emailed to Erica.Crowley@trincoll.edu. Thank you Claire Pritchard ’20 for authoring these messages and compiling our list!
If you are ready to create and send out your cards, great! Be sure to post your cards on social media and tag @trincollcher before you place them in the mail.
- You are real-life superheroes, setting an example of selflessness, compassion, and bravery for all.
- I am so grateful for your generosity; from giving your time and your compassion to those who need it most.
- In a time like this, you are a beacon of hope, a reminder of how much good there is in the world and how we can all embody that.
- I can never forget your selfless dedication to the health of your community, and for that I commend and thank you.
Here are a few templates in Canva you can add your message to and then print out. Alternatively, you can hand write and color your own cards like the one below! See cards you can print and color here.
