About Holiday Honor Cards

For over 20 years, United Ministries has asked a local artist to create a piece of artwork for our Holiday Honor Card. The artwork includes a sense of the holidays, a sense of poverty, and a Greenville scene. The donated artwork is displayed in the Templeton Conference Room, where visitors can appreciate its beauty and significance. Before it is displayed, we turn the artwork into a beautiful holiday greeting card that you can use to honor family, friends, clients, and colleagues. By making a donation in someone’s honor to United Ministries, you are also honoring someone in our community who truly needs the kind of support that your gift will provide.

2019 Holiday Honor Card Original Art by Toddrick Watkins, 2019 GED Graduate

Toddrick Watkins, a native of Spartanburg, SC, is a 2019 graduate of United Ministries’ Adult Education program. Currently a custodial staff member at a prominent upstate hospital, Toddrick plans to join the Air Force and become the first person in his family to serve in the military. He hopes to gain a broader mindset through travel and new opportunities and plans to one day open an art studio of his own. In designing this piece, Toddrick states that his intent was to convey “that the Learning Center is a place of support and fellowship.”

Toddrick studied art through school and after school programs throughout high school. He states that, while his schools recognized his potential in art, they did not push him academically. When he decided to pursue a GED, he says “a fire was lit” that eventually led him to United Ministries

How it Works

A donation given in honor of someone special to you directly supports United Ministries’ mission to serve and empower those on the transformative journey to self-sufficiency.

Some people wonder what donation to make, but we leave that up to you.  The average donation per card last year was $8.50 and the top donation received last year for one card was $100.  We can sign and mail the cards on your behalf.  It’s our gift to you.
