United Way of Carlisle and Cumberland County


Looking for a way to make someone smile?  How about sending a greeting card or a pen pal letter to one of our local Assisted Care Facilities? 

Due to social distancing many residents in Assisted Care Facilities may not have regular contact with family or friends, especially now. We are inviting community members to send encouraging and friendly notes, poems, drawings, and stories to people in our community who might be happy to read something from a friendly pen. If you are able to send an uplifting greeting to one of the Assisted Care residents, your letters will be received and appreciated.

Please address your card & letters to “Dear Friend,” and mail to one of the local facilities below:
