‘Sunshine Project’ to create postcards for people isolated at home

BRATTLEBORO — Green Mountain RSVP is seeking volunteers to write short, cheerful messages on standard-size postcards that will be distributed to individuals who are isolated in their homes.

The organization is calling this their “Sunshine Project,” for “spreading a little cheer to people during the heart of winter.”

These cards will be delivered to people who receive Meals on Wheels, who live in nursing homes, and who are served by Senior Solutions/Council on Aging.

This volunteer project can be done from the comfort of your own home. The project will mail or deliver a pack of 20 postcards with an envelope in which to return them, once completed, for distribution.

The project intends to distribute the cards to recipients during the week of Jan. 18, 2021, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, to honor the memory of the civil rights leader and his vision of community service and lifting up the less fortunate.

GMRSVP is an AmeriCorps Seniors program for people age 55 and older. For more information, visit rsvpvt.org/post/mlk-day-of-service-sunshine-project.
