CREATE ENCOURAGEMENT CARDS
Episcopal Community Services of San Francisco
Importance: Most of our formerly homeless residents and guests live alone and many are seniors. With the heightened need to stay inside, often without the comforts or TV or computers, the people we serve are at high risk for isolation and depression.
Description: Create and mail in cards filled with words of encouragement for formerly homeless people who have been sheltered in place for months. Residents love cards that are created from hand, but if you're not the artsy type, feel free to buy cards and simply fill them out.
Needed Skills and Materials:
- Access to a computer and printer or the ability to create the cards from hand
- The ability to mail or drop off the cards to our headquarters in San Francisco
