Elderly Letter Writing Campaign: Uplift the spirit of seniors
August 24 - September 26
Social distancing has led older adults living in long term care facilities to be isolated from their loved ones. More than 8 million adults aged 50 and older are affected by isolation, which the AARP notes can have profound physical and emotional impacts to quality of life.
We are excited to partner with Love for the Elderly for a letter writing/card campaign to the elderly. Write one letter/card, or many! These will be sent to Love for the Elderly who will distribute them to facilities with seniors who are in need of uplifting messages. Please see the following Guidelines.
Thank you to the New York City Ancient Team for researching and organizing this opportunity:
