Letters from the Heart

Are you struggling with “social distancing”? Do you feel lonely?
Maybe opening your heart to those in our community who can’t get visitors, and who are isolated and by themselves might decrease this feeling.

We invite you to write “Letters from the Heart”, letters of love and encouragement and hope for someone who suffers all by him/herself during this time, in nursing homes, senior residences, and rehab homes. You may use words, or children may draw – whatever your heart desires. Please write in Spanish if you can. The letters will be collected and dropped off to bring joy and love to those who need it most.

Please send your letters or drawings to
