Young Alumni Council Letter Writing

We will participate in a virtual letter writing campaign for our local senior citizens. The COVID-19 pandemic kept us physically distant and separated, which led to our senior citizens going an extended period of time without visits from family, friends and other loved ones. As the pandemic showed us, being around others allows us to thrive in our daily lives. To provide some warmth and happiness to our senior citizen community, join us as we come together virtually to write encouraging letters to our fellow community members and enjoy time with your fellow Trojans.
