October Event Recap: Letter It Out

Across Generations has successfully completed our annual event, Letter It Out! Thank you to everyone who came out to the event and contributed to making cards. The cards will be sent to Children’s Hospitals through the organization, CardzForKidz. Do not worry if you missed your chance to write the cards as we will have more upcoming Letter It Out events in the future!

Christmas Event

Across Generations is thrilled to announce our upcoming Christmas event! Volunteers can make Christmas cards and send personalized gifts to their pen pals. Non-volunteers can participate as well by making Christmas cards with non-personal messages. Across Generations will provide a selection of Christmas card templates and gift options for you to choose from.

Event Phase 1: Card-Making Competition

To begin the event, we will be holding a Card-Making Competition this month! You can participate by making a Christmas card template and submitting it to by Sunday, November 11th.

After the competition closes, we will open a google form for Christmas Card submissions. Volunteers and non-volunteers will be given the opportunity to write a personalized message on one of the Christmas Card templates collected from the competition. The person who submits the most popular template will win a $5 Starbucks gift card!

Event Phase 2: Christmas Card + Holiday Gift Submission

On Nov. 13th, Across Generations will release a Google form for Christmas Card & Care Package submissions.

  • Christmas Card: You will be able to pick from a selection of Christmas card templates. We will print the personalized cards and deliver them to pen pals and residents in the local community.

  • Holiday Gift: There will be a selection of options that you can choose from with no cost, to include in the residents’ care package! Some of the options will include: fuzzy socks, candles, tea, etc.

Please feel free to check our Instagram post and stay tuned for further details!
