Recently, Senior Pen Pals and More teamed up with Easterseals Delaware & Maryland’s Eastern Shore to help combat the feeling of loneliness felt by their participants who are not able to attend the adult day programs due to COVID-19. The group brought joy to over 240 participants by writing encouraging letters which were mailed to participants’ homes. The group plans to continue to send letters to additional Easterseals participants.
Currently, the coronavirus pandemic has highlighted the need for neighbors to help neighbors, especially seniors isolated and lonely. If you know a senior who might benefit from the program or a volunteer who would like to become a pen pal, contact them at email@example.com.
