The Caring Mail Project: Springtime Messages of Hope for Isolated Elders
February 16 - February 28
While many of us miss time with friends, it is important to keep in mind that there are community members who are even more lonely (and bored!) than we are. This project can be a healthy way to look at our own situations from a different perspective.
- Think about how grateful we are for the things we still get to do.
- Imagine together how hard it would be to be even more isolated.
- How can we make someone’s holiday feel better when they cannot celebrate the way they used to?
It’s hard. Receiving messages of friendship & reassurance can make a big difference – creating connection, spreading cheer, and building hope for isolated elders.
Our springtime messages of hope will be distributed by The Emergency Assistance Center (TEAC), a food pantry that provides community members with a monthly 7-day supply of food. TEAC provides food, clothing, and personal hygiene items, as well as seasonal support, to Northern Summit County neighbors in need. Our cards will be included with their Easter holiday distribution.
Join us in helping isolated elders look forward to spring, to their Easter holiday, and to connection.
