Many care facilities throughout NWA and the country went on lockdown due to COVID-19, in many areas leaving the residents isolated, and as you can imagine, confused and scared. They cannot have any visitors and many are having their meals left outside their doors.

Please consider participating in simple acts of kindness and take a few moments to write a letter to brighten their day, and to let them know that you are thinking of them. Generic letters with poems, drawings, or simple loving messages would be appreciated by residents at these facilities. Their ages are up to 100 years old. If your children would like to join in with letters and pictures, that would be precious.

Some of these facilities in impacted areas may be working with just a skeleton crew, which can further add to the residents’ feeling of isolation. Residents are really struggling with this situation, as well as the caregivers in these worlds. A facility in Washington State has shared the letters with residents and staff and created walls of joy for the people to see at read to help keep their spirits up during these tough times.

If you would like to participate, please consider writing to some of these locations:
