VNA of Ohio is especially grateful to those dedicated volunteers who, for nearly 20 years, have donated handcrafted cards to patients and their families. Delicately crafted cards are made with pressed flowers and personalized with a unique design. Cards may be purchased at the Botanical Gardens, Holden Arboretum, Ginko Gallery & Studio Ltd Oberlin and Bay Arts.
