THE DRAGONFLY PROJECT

The Dragonfly Project is a mission partner of Nativity Lutheran Church and a nonprofit organization that sends condolence cards carrying a message of hope to people who are grieving. The organization consists of volunteers who look up names in obituaries and help pull together and mail packets out to people who are grieving usually 3-6 months after the death has occurred. Each packet contains a condolence card, a copy of the dragonfly story printed on the inside of the cover and a dragonfly key chain.
