Say Hello


Pen Pal Program

In these times where communications come fast and furious and in every form of technology imaginable, there’s something to be said for the hand-written note. It’s tangible, it’s personal, and it’s hard to delete. And we’re putting it to work. 

HELLO is all about connecting with one another and we feel personal notes go a long way toward opening doors, brightening days, and helping to counter the effects of isolation and social distancing.

There’s one thing our card writing program desperately needs, however: you. If you’ve got time to write a few hellos to someone in need of a greeting, we’d love to have you join us. Besides, it’s a good way to brush up on your penmanship. 

How does it work? Well, it’s easy. First, be assured that your contact information will be kept confidential. If you want to be a sender and start the conversation, we’ll provide you with a card and the name of the person you’re sending it to. We ask that you write a kind, heartfelt note to them. Once you’ve written your note, please return it to the location you picked it up from and we’ll address it and send it off. Simple as that.

If you want to receive a letter from one of our pen pals, we ask that you provide your name and physical address. The person writing you will be provided only your name, nothing more. We’ll be the ones to address them and put them in the mail.

 So, what do you say? Will you join us? Just sign up below as either a sender or recipient of a custom HELLO card. It’s a small, personal gesture that can make a big, bright impact on our community.
