We have officially launched our Pen Pal program!
We are working to link together volunteers with seniors in our community.
COVID-19 has been isolating for everyone, but especially for our seniors who have been working hard to protect themselves. This program is a safe way to bring some more connection into peoples lives.
All letters come through the CLPCS and are screened prior to going out, this way we can help maintain the anonymity of both the senior and the volunteer.
In a little less than 2 weeks since we started asking for volunteers to write letters we have received almost 300! A huge testament to how amazing our community is.
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer or are someone interested in receiving letters please contact us. We have additional information for you and would love to connect with you.
We would really like to thank the Grand Prairie Palliative Care Society for all the advice and support.
We would also like to thank the Cold Lake FCSS for their help in facilitating this program, we could not do this without you.
