This Month's Challenge: Write Letters to Hawai'i Elders

Almost 60,000 seniors in Hawaii are currently living alone or in group housing. As the most vulnerable to Coronavirus, they have been placed in strict isolation, exacerbating the issue to loneliness and depression already plaguing seniors.

Their limited familiarity with technology prevents them from connecting using Zoom like the rest of us. Handwritten letters were the principal means of communication when they were young, and continues to represent a cherished medium for them.

We can make a difference by sending letters of support and helping them feel connected to the community.
