In the midst of the Coronavirus crisis Easterseals Northern Ohio is launching a new Pen Pal Program to provide companionship and enhance the socialization of senior citizens and people with disabilities who are currently isolated. This is a simple way to make a big difference in someone's life! We are encouraging children and families to register to be a pen pal. This is a great opportunity to enhance writing, reading and social skills while students are at home.
It is simple to become a Pen Pal:
1. Register for the Pen Pal Program
2. You will be connected to an Easterseals client
3. Start writing letters or making cards
4. Experience the joy of help others
Help Easter Seals Create Solutions and Change Lives
Creating solutions and changing lives is what we do at Easter Seals. Join us and you, too, can make a difference and help people with disabilities achieve their goals. Volunteer your time to share your talents, whether performing office work, volunteering at events and camps, or any other way you can help.
Need more convincing? In the words of Edgar "Daddy" Allen, founder of Easter Seals, "We have but one life. We get nothing out of that life except by putting something into it. To relieve suffering, to help the unfortunate, to do kind acts and deeds is, after all, the one sure way to secure happiness or to achieve real success. Your life and mine shall be valued not by what we take...but by what we give."
Easter Seals Northern Ohio is always looking for enthusiastic volunteers for special events, our Senior Friends Program and our Medical Equipment Loan Program, just to name a few. Find out more about volunteer opportunities.
