Community Connections – Letters to Seniors

« All Events

November 9 - December 31

La Quinta Public Library has partnered with The Palms at La Quinta Assisted Living to ask for help from the community to help combat feelings of isolation by mailing positive and kind words through cards, postcards, homemade cards, drawings and encouraging letters to the address below. The staff at the facility will then deliver your letters to the residents in need of some cheer.

Here are the details:

  • Program runs November 9 to December 31, 2020
  • This program is open to all ages.
  • Letters must be legible (large print) and handwritten. No worries if you’re not artistic– make your card as what you’d like to receive.
  • Avoid religion, if possible. Your letter should resonate with anyone.
  • Exclude the date (day, month, or year)
  • Be kind & thoughtful. This is a one-way mail program, so you will not receive a letter back.
  • Sign with your first name only and place your creation in an unsealed envelope.
  • Ready to mail? Hooray! Place that unsealed envelope inside another envelope and mail it directly to:
