Creative Pen Pal ConnectionsCreative Pen Pal Logo

Introducing an on-going pen pal program for all ages that will be a win-win for all participants.  It’s guaranteed to bring a smile to your heart; and it’s guaranteed to eliminate feelings of loneliness and isolation . . . you may even develop a new friendship.  Every effort will be made to match pen pals with similar interests.  A packet of stationary and stamped envelopes will be provided to participants and volunteers.  WPRF volunteers will be screened and begin correspondence with pen pal participants.

Senior Connect

Feeling lonely?  Need someone to chat with?  Want to converse over the telephone with someone of your own age?  If you are a senior, you may wish to have a phone conversation with another senior. This isolation-breaking, friendship-making, connection-creating program is planned to meet your needs.  WPRF volunteers will be screened and will initiate the phone conversation with the Senior Connect participants.
