Did you know, more than 20% of our neighbors are adults aged 60 or older? That’s almost half a million people!
Changing conditions are holding older adults back from engaging in everyday activities that help them stay connected to their friends, family and the community. While social services like home delivered meals and wellness support play an important role in providing connections to older adults who may not have outside friends or families, by uniting together, we can all be part of the solution.
That’s why we’re partnering with United Way of Greater Cincinnati to launch United4Neighbors: Notes of Encouragement. Together, we will provide 15,000 notes to local seniors. You can help by pledging to write notes to help us reach our goal. Additionally, given the state of our nation and the world, we encourage you to share a note with your family and friends! Being connected to others enables us to thrive, and during a time when many are feeling disconnected and divided, social connection is something we can encourage and facilitate as a means of bringing people together.
So, what’s next? We ask individuals, families, corporate groups, youth athletic groups, and more to pledge the number of notes you commit to writing.
