LITTLE ROCK, AR (Mar. 23, 2020) – As a way to bring some joy to the Arkansas children in its residential programs, Methodist Family Health is asking the community to send notes, letters or cards to the children and families in their residential programs.
“Do you remember getting a letter in the mail that was all yours?” asked Kelli Reep, director of communications with Methodist Family Health. “Or a birthday card, a note from a friend, a magazine clipping from your family? Remember the grin you got when seeing that envelope in their handwriting? That’s what we want our kids to experience, especially during this COVID-19 event.”
If you are looking for a way to share with someone during this COVID-19 event, you can send a postcard, greeting card, note or letter to any of the children in Methodist Family Health’s locations below.
“Whether it’s a letter on notebook paper, a postcard from the post office, a hand-drawn picture from your child or a card saying, ‘You are the best, and I believe in you,’ your sentiment will bring a lot of light to children in our care who are abandoned, abused, neglected and managing psychiatric, behavioral, emotional and spiritual issues,” Reep said.
