Seniors in Chinatown are facing a growing mental health crisis in prolonged isolation. We invite you to sign up to become a "Picture Pal," exchanging drawings and pictures with a Chinatown Elder, to share the joy of sending and receiving mail. For the cost of a drawing + stamp + envelope, you can help someone through this time!

Sign up to be a Picture Pal using our Google Form. You will be paired with a Chinatown Elder, and receive a name and mailing addresses to begin exchanging drawings.
