Our pen-pal program connects students with senior citizens through letter writing. These letters can be more creative and include drawings or are text heavy. The ultimate goal of the Amity Program is to increase intergenerational interaction through communication-based programming.
TELEPHONE CORRESPONDENCE PROGRAM
Our telephone correspondence program connects students with senior citizens through weekly phone calls. These intergenerational pairs get to know one another and can learn from the other.
ART BOX PROGRAM
The art box program sends art supplies to homebound seniors, in particular those with dementia. The activities are simple and allow a small break for the participant's care partner.
Making a card is an easy, fun, and important way to contribute to the work that the Amity Program does to decrease social isolation among seniors. This is an excellent project to do on a slow day or to do as a community or in a corporate setting. Making a card is a simple way to help brighten someone’s day.
