Holiday Cards for Seniors
The mailing deadline for cards has passed. A sincere thank you to everyone who helped to make the holidays more special for these seniors! PANE members have helped to provide holiday wishes to 245 seniors.
COVID is impacting everyone this holiday season, especially seniors and our homeless population. We want to help! We're joining forces with Hearth, an area non-profit working to end elder homeless through housing placement and advocacy. We're looking for volunteers to send cards to residents (who still can't have visitors) to give them an extra boost this season. Each volunteer will get your favorite card(s) written out to the first name of the senior(s) you'll be assigned and you'll mail it to the Hearth coordinator, who will distribute them to their wonderful residents!
If you're interested, please email us at email@example.com and indicate:
-- subject line: RSVP: Holiday Cards for Seniors
-- how many seniors you'd like to write (between 1-3)
-- which holidays you'd like to cover:
** Thanksgiving + the winter holidays [Th'giving cards need to be mailed by 11/19]
** The winter holidays only [Dec cards will need to be mailed by 12/11 and these
should be general 'Seasons Greetings' or similar cards to cover all faiths]
Names and mailing details will be emailed individually. If people don't have Thanksgiving-specific cards, you can send any card/stationary you have at home and include a nice message to mark the holiday. Thank you for your interest and your help in bringing these seniors some added holiday joy!
