Placemats

Each of our holiday meals come with an adorable placemat that is artfully crafted by a kiddo. We always need about 4,000 placemats for each holiday.

 

Each placemat is like a hug that goes with the meal, and are usually taped to our seniors' fridges! And now, we're accepting cards for our seniors, too!
