  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 48 people are interested

With COVID cases on the rise again, many people in long-term care facilities, such as hospitals and senior homes are in dire need of human connection and compassion. Plus One Foundation wants YOUR help to connect with these folks and let them know they're cared for.

Due to the pandemic, many individuals with chronic illnesses have been unable to leave their house, leading to greater levels of loneliness and isolation. This is why Plus One Foundation started our penpal program: to provide heartfelt, handwritten letters and drawings of encouragement to these individuals to brighten their days and ensure they know they're in our thoughts! So far, we have sent 395 letters, and we'd love to send more with your help!

How it works:
The process is simple: you sign up here on VolunteerMatch, and we will send you an email to organize and match you to as many pen pals as you'd like to send letters to. Volunteer hours available for this opportunity upon request.

We are expecting volunteers to send at least two letters every month, but you can feel free to contact your pen pal(s) more often if you'd like! Please note that pen pals are under no obligation to write back, although some may definitely love to-- in case you would specifically like your penpal to respond, let us know and we are happy to coordinate that.

Sign up today and spread love to those who need it most.
