As a pen pal, you can connect with one of our communities seniors – share ideas, share stories, make each other laugh and learn from one another. The two “pals” (student and senior) can determine the best mode to exchange letters/writings (mail or e-mail). Many of our valley’s seniors are socially isolated. Study after study demonstrates that seniors who socialize and get connected with others, live longer and more happily.
