Dear Community: A Pen Pal Program

Dear Community: A Pen Pal Program

South Washington County Schools Community Education, our Senior Center and the Cities of Cottage Grove and Woodbury are working together to launch an intergenerational pen pal program to keep our community connected while social distancing is in effect. We hope that this effort will have lasting impacts on lives of those involved.

We will match youth and older adults in our community and ask them to share at least three letters with one another. After that, it's up to you how long you'd like to continue writing to one another! Updated September 25: we are still accepting youth and adult participants who wish to sign-up!

Apply to participate here.
