Recently, the seniors in the Winters High School Class of 2023, and the Winters Senior Foundation joined pens and paper to participate in the school’s Senior Capstone pen pal project.

Inspired and conceived by Senior class officers President Giselle Del Toro and Treasurer Denise Valdez, the program arose from their personal experiences. They did not get the chance to meet their grandparents and lacked the opportunity to share in this special relationship with an older generational partner, who could proved guidance, insights and wisdom.

They recognize the invaluable resource seniors retain and want to share in and learn from their experiences by engaging in a pen pal relationship. Ultimately, they believe this program will provide an opportunity for young adults to bond with senior members of the community and to create a more unified community —expressed as “the power of words.”

Older adults who are interested in becoming a pen pal, should contact bob@wintersseniorfounda with your name and home address. A high school student will be assigned to you and send a handwritten letter. It is expected that you will exchange letters once a month and engage in “the letter writing fun.”
