Send a kind note to an isolated elderly New Yorker

Just a few thoughtful words will bring comfort this Thanksgiving

This year, far away from our loved ones, Thanksgiving will look different for many of us. For our often forgotten neighbors — New York City’s homebound elderly — it’ll be a painful reminder of their heightened isolation over the past year. For many meal recipients, their deliverer is the only other person they see.

Marilyn has felt an emptiness in her life since she lost her husband Henry three years ago. He was all the family she had. Now, Thanksgiving only reminds her of the love she shared with Henry for 60 years, and of how alone she is.

As Thanksgiving Day approaches, there’s a small act of kindness you can extend to let vulnerable elderly neighbors like her know they have not been forgotten... just write a few kind words.

Your note will brighten Marilyn’s day, and it’ll be delivered with a holiday meal to remind frail aged New Yorkers like her they have a caring family looking out for them at all times.
