April is National Letter-Writing Month, and we invite you to celebrate the written word and brighten the day for someone in a nursing home or assisted living facility! During the entire month of April, you’ll find a letter-writing station near the Adult Information desk, stocked with all the makings for a lovely letter – card stock, glue sticks, sweet sayings, and writing prompts, along with some beautiful nature photographs donated by a talented Guilderland patron/photographer.
Create a card, write something warm and uplifting inside, and we will mail your creations to Love for the Elderly, a not-for-profit organization (run by a 17-year-old) that will distribute the letters to senior citizens nationwide.
