Help relieve social isolation for the elderly and bring happiness to their day by registering to become a PENPAL!
If you like writing letters or messages, making cards and drawings this is a great activity for you.
We will assign an elderly person to you who is currently living in residential care or living on their own to become their penpal.
Each week over the next 3 months, you will send cards, drawings or letters which will be received by that person.
All contact will be by first name and age only. We will supply a central address to receive the mail and the letters will be distributed from there.
This program has been funded by the Department of Veteran Affairs and is FREE to participate.
Plus – at the end of the social distancing we will host a reunion betwen pen pals – something fun to look forward to!
Age: 6 – 18yr
Date: There is no set start or finish date to this program. Register as soon as you’re keen to begin!
