During Covid, the founder found herself sitting at home, lonely. She thought about all of those in facilities that don’t have strong support and what they must be going through, especially during this pandemic. Jess thought it would be fun to become a pen pal. She wrote a greetings card to all 32 residents of that facility and to her surprise, 12 responded! From there she reached out to friends and family and found pen pals for each interested resident. This program was a big hit and expanded to other facilities, becoming a nonprofit!
