Letters to New Friends: Care Packages for Seniors & Veterans


We’re looking for people who want to send cards, drawings, or letters to our friends who are unable to leave their apartments or the hospital. This is a great activity for families to do together, our new friends love the homemade drawings and notes we’ve distributed so far. If you’d like a reply, you can include your address but a one-time note is fine too.

If you’re interested send your care package to us at Pack Library. The address is LETTERS TO NEW FRIENDS, Pack Memorial Library, 67 Haywood Street, Asheville, NC 28801.

You can also drop your cards and letters into any library book drop and we’ll get it into the right hands. Remember we’re all in this together and a little bit of cheer can go a long way.
