Some of our youngest residents visited their pen pals at Herndon Senior Center this month. The children thrilled to share cards they had created and spent time with their pals in person.
The pen pal initiative connects young Wesley Housing residents with older adults in their community. Through story sharing, children participants sharpen their writing and drawing skills, connect with older adults, and get to know their community better. Participants like Kennedy benefit from getting to know older adults like Gladys, who provide mentorship.
