Finished this kind act? Log it!

Our seniors love receiving letters from their pen pals. Letters from pen pals are proven to boosted happiness, support brain development, promote connection, and increase feelings of acceptance. There are still so many more members of our community waiting to hear from you! This week, we’re challenging you to write as many letters as you can to seniors.

Starting today, we challenge you to write at least 10 letters to seniors in the next 5 days. Are you up for it?

Dear friend, I hope you are well. It is chilly here in New England. I spent the weekend baking apple bread and outside getting the garden ready for winter.

I have written my 2 pen pal letters today, and am confident that I can meet the challenge for this week😀 I love sending cards and letters. I had a pen pal from 5th grade through high school graduation. I lived in Illinois and she In California. I have missed that connection, and am glad you have a pen pal program.
