Letters to Local Seniors in Partnership with Hearts of Hospice

May 17, 2020

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 12:00 am on Sunday, repeating until May 31, 2020

Many seniors living in assisted living and care facilities are in isolation without their usual visits from friends, family and community service workers. Patrons can support local seniors by writing letters. Patrons can contact arwen@hoodriverlibrary.org for details about drop-off, pick up and delivery. People have been addressing correspondence to “A friend I haven’t met yet” or “Dear Community Member.” A simple message about your day, description of the flowers you see outside your window, or a hopeful word are all that is needed. Children’s drawings or writing are most appreciated. Rheva Wren, who created the program, said, “It’s been one of the most rewarding things I’ve ever done. The cards and letters from the community members are so welcome at the care facilities.”
