Letters to Seniors Program

Hello from Cameron Seniors Programs! We have been invited to join in a project organized by Volunteer Grandparents BC. Here’s some information about the project, from Volunteer Grandparents:

In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, staying connected with others is more important than ever. Falling under our mission to bridge and enrich generations, in the summer of 2020, we initiated a new program aiding the creation of intergenerational connections within the community in a safe and engaging manner during these times.

Our new program called Letters to Seniors involves supporting isolated seniors with encouraging, meaningful handwritten letters sent by volunteers of all ages.

So far we have had over 150 community members submit letters, drawings, and kind messages for seniors in our community.
