HOW IT WORKS
Thank you for your interest in holding a group service event! We would love to help you facilitate it. Writing to seniors is a fun and safe way to serve the community, and do some good.
Saffron and I are both at school right now, so it is difficult for us to match you with a home local to your group or speak at your event. That said, we have all the resources to run an incredible service opportunity right on this web page!
We would love for you to send written messages of love and connection to our friends at Southern Pride Senior Services. They deliver meals (and your letters) to 700 seniors across Southern Illinois. Please send your letters to them at this address:
Southern Pride Senior Services
PO Box 1372,
Calgary Meals on Wheels c/o Janice
5759 – 80 Avenue SE
Once your group has finished writing, please let us know how many letters you sent by filling out the form at the bottom of the page! We also ask that you do not include any contact information in your letters (email, phone number, return address) to protect your privacy and that you do not solicit. We do our best to maintain an inclusive space at Letters Against Isolation. Because of this, we ask that you stay politically and religiously neutral in your letters. For ideas of what to write and how to decorate, check out our blog!
Getting to hear a little more about the organization and the seniors you are writing to can be a great way to kick off an event and get everyone excited to write. We have recorded a video of ourselves saying a few words about Letters Against Isolation for you to share at your event.
If you have any questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will do our best to respond within two weeks.
