UK Women’s Forum Hosts Card Writing Service Project for Local Seniors

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Dec. 1, 2021)  The season of giving is upon us! You are invited to join the University of Kentucky Women’s Forum (UKWF) in spreading holiday cheer to seniors living in local nursing homes and assisted living facilities by participating in the "Cards to Show We Care" events throughout the month of December. All are welcome to join in this card writing activity and virtual event.

If you want to write cards for local seniors, you can provide your own cards or pick up blank cards supplied by UKWF. These cards are available at three designated locations on campus: Gatton College of Business and Economics Room 359, Gatton Student Center Room A154R (across from WRFL) or WR Willard Medical Education Building MN 117.

In addition, from 9-10 a.m. Friday, Dec. 3, the UK Women’s Forum will be hosting the second annual virtual “Merry Little Holiday Card Party” where they will take time to write cards and build community. You can register to attend with this link:

To return cards, stop by the Holiday Cocoa and Cookies Card Drop Off event from noon-1 p.m. Wednesday, Dec.15, in the Gatton College of Business and Economics’ Woodward Hall, Room 307. Cards can also be returned to any of the on-campus pick-up locations listed above by Dec. 10.

As the state’s flagship, land-grant institution, the University of Kentucky exists to advance the Commonwealth. We do that by preparing the next generation of leaders — placing students at the heart of everything we do — and transforming the lives of Kentuckians through education, research and creative work, service and health care. We pride ourselves on being a catalyst for breakthroughs and a force for healing, a place where ingenuity unfolds. It's all made possible by our people — visionaries, disruptors and pioneers — who make up 200 academic programs, a $476.5 million research and development enterprise and a world-class medical center, all on one campus.   

In 2022, UK was ranked by Forbes as one of the “Best Employers for New Grads” and named a “Diversity Champion” by INSIGHT into Diversity, a testament to our commitment to advance Kentucky and create a community of belonging for everyone. While our mission looks different in many ways than it did in 1865, the vision of service to our Commonwealth and the world remains the same. We are the University for Kentucky.
