Pen Pals Needed!

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Phinney Neighborhood Association

  • 127 people are interested

Help us connect with each other, in the old-fashioned way! Seniors are needed to help kids learn the art of letter writing, practice penmanship and communicate with an adult outside their household. And kids are needed to write back! Both get snail mail and a new friend in the process!

We match up kids with seniors (or kids with other kids, if preferred), make introductions and send writing prompts. We currently have pen pals in 46 states, and are aiming to get participation from all 50 states, plus DC and Puerto Rico.
