Last summer the girls at New Life Children’s Center had a project: writing get well cards for soldiers who had been injured in Afghanistan. This project was coordinated by “Chicktime”* the mother/daughter service group that is very active and involved at New Life.
It so happened that Major John McGee, who is with a medical unit that was deployed to Afghanistan, is a friend of some of the Chicktime Chicks. Major McGee delivered the cards to many seriously injured soldiers while he was deployed.
As a thank you for writing the get well cards, the New Life girls were presented with a beautiful plaque by the military. The plaque includes a flag that was flown over Craig Joint Theater Hospital in Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan.
It’s been a thrilling and humbling experience for the letter writers and everyone at New Life who stops to pause and admire our new plaque.
Chicktime is a grass roots movement created to serve the next generation, by bringing together groups of women using their unique gifts in the service of others. Chicktime New Life encourages the girls at the Center through fun projects that bring a bright spot to their lives.
