Project Send Love is Coming to an End.
Project Send Love was developed with the goal of fostering cross-generational connection during a time of crisis. As retirement communities and skilled nursing facilities return to their post-pandemic programming, we will be shutting our doors and focusing on new community building projects. We have been honored to connect with and serve the communities we have been in contact with these past three years and hope that folks will continue to find new and creative ways to share and send love in our absence.
Project Send Love will be closing on March 10th. We will not be able to provide volunteer verification forms for any hours submitted after that date.
The story behind Project Send Love
Project Send Love was started by a group of social scientists in Kansas City who were thinking about the social impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on older adults in senior living facilities. This group hoped to connect community members to older adults in the Kansas City area through letter writing in order to address social isolation and feelings of loneliness.
Project Send Love has grown to include senior living facilities throughout the United States! The project is now housed in the University of Kansas School of Social Welfare and maintains the same goal of connecting community members throughout the country to older adults in senior living facilities through letter writing.
