Launched: Letters to Seniors Program
In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, staying connected with others is more important than ever. Falling under our mission to bridge and enrich generations, we have initiated a new program aiding the creation of intergenerational connections within the community in a safe and engaging manner during these times.
Our new program called Letters to Seniors involves supporting isolated seniors within care homes with encouraging, meaningful handwritten letters sent by volunteers of all ages. The program consists of two phases:
Phase One: Volunteers of all ages send drawings and or short cheerful cards/letters to seniors
Phase Two: Youth volunteers (18 and under) and seniors who are eager to build a connection with one another join the pen-pal format of the program, where they send letters back and forth and discuss their interests, hobbies, etc.
Please send a message if you are interested in participating in this new program: firstname.lastname@example.org .
This project is funded in part by the Government of Canada.
