The Caring Mail Project: Reaching Out to Isolated Elders
June 16, 2020 - June 26, 2020
Reaching Out to Isolated Elders
While many of us are able to begin some outings and time with friends if we follow COVID-19 precautions (masks + distance), our community’s elders remain isolated and dependent on service providers. We are honored to send caring & cheerful messages to isolated elders who receive services through Jewish Family Services Association of Cleveland (JFSA).
JFSA helps individuals and families with solutions to face life’s challenges with confidence. JFSA is making a special effort to brighten the day of Holocaust Survivors and other older adults who are isolated in their homes due to COVID-19. Many are without family, so community support in the form of Caring Mailis one way to cheer their spirits.
