Wyoming Is Asking Kids For Help Writing Letters To The Elderly
It's no secret that staying home to keep the vulnerable safe is hard for everyone.
Not only are we all feeling a bit stir crazy, but the fight against loneliness is real...especially for Wyoming's elderly citizens.
First Lady of Wyoming, Jennie Gordon, is asking Wyoming's kids to help the Department of Health and Aging spread some good cheer.

One kind word can change someone's entire day. So many kind words are pouring into the Governor's Residence and we hope that many more will come. The first batch of cards and letters will be mailed out this week in collaboration with the Aging Division: Wyoming Department of Health after adhering to the Wyoming Department of Health's best practices. It is wonderful to see Wyoming neighbors supporting one another.
All they need to do is draw a picture or write a letter and send it to the address below.
The state of Wyoming will then make sure the letters get to the more than 3,500 aging adults in Wyoming who could use a little extra love right now.
Send your envelopes of letters/drawings to:
Wyoming Governor's Residence
5001 Central Ave.
Cheyenne, WY 82009
Those that live locally can drop letters and pictures off at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Wyoming, and they will mail them for you.
Interested in sending a digital message or photo?
You can email them to firstname.lastname@example.org and your letters and pictures will be printed off and mailed for distribution.
I am thankful Ms. Gordon knew that she could ask Wyoming children and families for help.
And, having one place to send all our drawings and letters means it's REALLY easy to participate in this community service project.
