DESCRIPTION

*Not affiliated with any non-profit or charity organization*
*A teen lead volunteer group*

During these unprecedented times, COVID 19 has changed our lives and caused the entire world in to a locked down. All of our well being is in danger, however the elderly communities are at a higher risk. With all nursing homes, retirement homes, and assisted living facilities under strict lockdown family members can't visit their loved ones. This has taken a great toll on their mental health. Additionally, many studies have shown that there mental health has a huge impact on the their life expectancy and overall physical health.

This local service is trying to support older communities through letters. We understand that physically sending letters may be challenging and may cause many to feel unsafe. In order to combat this issue we have decided that everyone and anyone who is interested in supporting this cause to send their letters to the email projecttightknit@gmail.com

We later print, place in envelopes and take to a specific nursing home in the York region, that we previously contacted. The frontline workers in these facilities have insured us that proper sanitation and protective measures will be taken before the letters are given to the elderly. We are also planning on expanding the number of nursing homes we are able to serve as the numbers of amazing volunteers grow.

The letters will be sent out in cycles so don't worry if you miss one, we will send the letters in the following rounds.

The first round is June 10, 2020

Some ideas and inspirations are
- Talk about your hobbies!
- Share fun facts!
- Talk about your interests!
- Tell jokes!
- Write riddles!
- Send positive and hopeful thoughts!
- Draw (upload with your email)
