From the heart: Students make cards for soldiers overseas

Hart Middle art teacher sends about 500 to 600 cards a year

Every year, Hart art teacher Jane Maker has her students make between 500 and 600 cards to send to soldiers serving in Iraq and Afghanistan as part of a community service project. The cards have a heartfelt message on one side and a drawing on the other.

Maker said members of various military branches have written back to the class, saying the cards help boost morale.

"It's a really good opportunity to thank people for what they've done," said eighth-grader Nehemiah Kaufman.

Andrew Sundquist, 13, said he hopes his letter will help cheer up some servicemembers.

"War is really stressful," he said.
