Write notes to the isolated homebound

Caring for Friends (formerly Aid for Friends) is inviting the community to provide handwritten “caring notes” for its snack bags, which are filled with nutritious nonperishable items for isolated, homebound, hungry people in the Philadelphia area.

The notes can be written on white or brightly colored 4×6-inch note cards using markers or colored pens. Kids who aren’t able to write notes can draw pictures or put stickers on the cards. They can be signed with first names.

Use clear, larger-sized print, as some clients may have poor eyesight. Do not make religious, political or controversial references.

Mail completed note cards to Caring for Friends, 12271 Townsend Road, Philadelphia, PA 19154. ••
