Project Send Love:

Linking Generations Through Letter Writing

The COVID-19 epidemic is a difficult time for our community. Research shows that loneliness and social isolation can negatively impact health. Many seniors in our community are restricted from having visitors. With kids, teens and parents spending more time at home, we can extend social support to our seniors by channeling energy into Project Send Love.

Fight loneliness among isolated seniors

Among senior citizens, loneliness and social isolation are associated with higher likelihood of depression, functional decline and premature mortality. With most senior living facilities closed to visitors, it is more essential than ever to find new ways to keep connected.

Benefit youth home from school

Project Send Love can help youth with writing, creativity and character development even when learning from home. Among children and teenagers, intergenerational communication has been shown to promote prosocial behavior, empathy toward seniors, self-esteem and community connectedness.

Strengthen community connection in uncertain times

Social distancing is difficult for everyone. But while the world is staying connected through technology, senior citizens with limited skills and comfort with technology may be left out. Letter writing can help bridge the gap.

Thoughts about Project Send Love

You don’t know the person and they don’t know you, but this small thing can make a difference in somebody’s life.
