Intergenerational Pen Pal Program

Wednesday, April 22, 2020

The City of Elk River Parks and Recreation Department invites local youth and seniors to participate in our new pen pal program.  We believe this is a great way to keep our community connected and will have positive impacts on those involved.

For youth, it will give them the opportunity to do an activity away from a screen, develop letter writing skills, and an opportunity to build a new relationship.  For seniors, this can help alleviate boredom and loneliness especially if they are feeling isolated. 

 Fill out the online form and we will match you up. We ask that you write at least 2 letters to each other, but you are welcome to continue to write to each other for as long as you would like! In the following weeks you will get an email or phone call from the Activity Center with your new pen pals address.

Call 763.635.4500 with questions.
