'Thanks for all the cards,' says Jewish Pavilion
April 10, 2020
Nancy Ludin, CEO of the Jewish Pavilion, is deeply concerned about the loneliness the residents of assisted-living facilities are feeling during this time of quarantine because of COVID-19. She suggested to the program directors that they write short notes to the senior citizens to brighten their day. She also shared the card sending idea in the article "What's in a card?" (March 27, 2020 Heritage issue) and encouraged Heritage readers to do the same.
The results have been incredible as the Jewish Pavilion has been inundated with cards, drawings, letters from children and adults from all over the community.
"The cards are arriving daily at the Jewish Pavilion-cards from all over the United States!" Ludin said.
As cards and letters come in, the program directors make sure they are distributed to the assisted-living facilities around town.
If you would like to write a card to brighten a senior citizen's day, send it to the Jewish Pavilion, 421 Montgomery Rd # 131, Altamonte Springs, FL 32714.
