PANE is excited to conduct our 2nd annual Holiday Cards for Seniors campaign.  We’re collaborating again with Hearth Inc., an area non-profit working to end elder homelessness through housing placement. Since COVID continues to affect isolated seniors, we're looking for volunteers to send cards to residents to share some added holiday joy.  Hearth recently opened a new site so they have over 220 units of housing – let’s make sure everyone there gets at least one card! Last year we sent almost 250 cards – let's shoot for 350 this year! 


Please RSVP below to let us know you’re participating.  Our hope is that everyone could send two or three cards but you’re welcome - and encouraged - to send more!  The cards aren’t written to a specific person, so we'd like to make sure everyone gets at least one.  Store-bought & homemade cards are welcomed from young & old. And please take photos of your cards to share with us!


We're offering the opportunity to participate in this service project remotely or in person. If you would like to attend or host an in-person cardmaking workshop, please email Raquel Frisardi ‘06 



Details are below.  Thank you for helping make these seniors feel special this holiday season!
