Letter Writing

Many area elders are going without hugs! During this outbreak, elders in nursing care homes and assisted living are unable to accept visitors- even from family members. And, our young people, stuck at home, are looking for ways to “do something” to make a difference during this outbreak. IVC Baltimore invites your classroom or religious education program to adopt a senior community- to write letters of support and flood our senior communities with love!


1.  Letters can be addressed to “Dear Friend” (see sample letters) and will be distributed by on-site staff. 

2.  See Grades K-5 letter samples and Grades 6-8 letter samples for inspiration.

3.  Mail to either of the options below.

4. Email Chris McCullough at [email protected] and let him know how many cards you sent, so we can ensure every community gets some cards!

Option 1:

Colombiere Jesuit Community

5704 Roland Ave, Baltimore, MD 21210

Jesuit Brothers and Fathers Religious Center and Retirement Community (on Facebook, here) is home to many retired priests and brothers. Many of the brothers are fellow parishioners who attend Sunday Mass at Cathedral!

Option 2:

Caritas House Assisted Living

Attn: Regina

3308 Benson Ave, Baltimore, MD 21227

Caritas House Assisted Living provides care and assistance to seniors 62 and older who require help in performing daily activities and can no longer live independently.

Option 3:

School Sisters of Notre Dame

Villa Assumpta

6401 N Charles St.
