Valdosta assisted living home connects residents to pen pals across the country

An assisted living facility in Valdosta kicked off its first-ever Pen Pal Project on October 15, and residents began receiving letters from across the nation this week.

The activities director at Fellowship Home at Brookside tells us she’s passed out more than 100 letters to residents in the last three days.

Participants were asked to fill out the white board shown below with their interests. The photos were then posted on social media. That post has now been shared by more than 5,000 others.
