Drake Software and Area Schools Send Christmas Cards to Local Veterans, Law Enforcement

More Than 3,000 Cards Delivered

Drake Software and Macon County schools produced more than 3,000 Christmas cards for the American Red Cross (ARC) Holiday for Heroes project and more than 100 cards for the second annual Holiday Cards for Cops program. For both projects, Drake Software distributed supplies to participating schools, where faculty and staff held card-creating events for students. Once the cards were completed, Drake collected them for delivery.

The ARC delivered the Holiday for Heroes cards to patients in Western North Carolina VA hospitals. The cards were created by students from ten participating schools: Cartoogechaye Elementary, East Franklin Elementary, Highlands School, Iotla Valley Elementary, Mountain View Intermediate, Macon Middle School, Nantahala School, South Macon Elementary, Trimont Christian Academy, and Union Academy.

Partnering with the Macon County VIP Program, Drake Software sent student-created Christmas cards to the Franklin Police Department and Macon County Sheriff’s Department as part of the Holiday Cards for Cops program.

Drake Software Vice President James Stork commented on both programs: “It is an honor and privilege to work with our local schools on both the Holiday for Heroes and Holiday Cards for Cops programs. We want to thank all the administrators, faculty, staff, and students who made both of these projects possible.”

Whether designing superheroes, penciling caricatures, or just doodling, I always knew I was going to earn some sort of art degree while in college. That was my goal before I decided to trade Edgar Degas for Edgar Allan Poe during a Freshman English class. The BA in English soon morphed into a double-major in English and Philosophy, eventually becoming an MA in English. It only makes sense that I learned of a writing opportunity for a local marketing firm while teaching a first-year college English course. Before I knew it, I was writing and editing tax-related articles for Taxing Subjects, and this has been my home since 2014.
