letters of lovePeople across the North Country are experiencing higher levels of isolation and loneliness during the pandemic. This is a real challenge for all of us, but particularly for our family and friends who reside in nursing homes.

They have set a goal to collect 1,500 letters by March 5.

    Great project ❤️ It’s easy for younger people to forget that seniors are, among many other cool things, encyclopedias of excellent knowledge. You’d be super surprised what great friends you’ll make – hope that people do this!
