Spreading Kindness

By now we all know that care facilities are locked down meaning no visitors or volunteers may enter. It also means that residents are confined to their rooms 24/7, including for meals. Imagine living every day with limited personal interaction and not seeing your friends, family, or friend down the hall.

When we understand that many long-term care residents do not have their own radio or TV in their room, let alone a computer or cell phone, we realize the boredom and fear of the virus or being forgotten are real issues. Those with dementia or disabilities may think they are being “punished.”

That is why we are launching our “Spreading Kindness” initiative to provide cards, letters and activities to residents in local living facilities. Residents in these facilities are used to fairly active lives and are missing their families, friends, Sr. Center lunches, church services, etc.

Won’t you considering participating as a way to keep yourself engaged in community or your children creatively occupied? Don’t be put off by perfectionism or lack of materials. The simplest note on a piece of paper will brighten someone’s day. Children might draw pictures or include a paper craft. Do not go shopping, but instead use what you have at home.

What to do?

  • Send cards and notes with encouraging messages, such as “We’re thinking of you!’ and “I hope you have a great day!”
  • Tell them a little about yourself, if you wish. Are you a farmer getting ready to plant fields, do you have a hobby or a pet, or did you take a vacation to an interesting place last year? Give them something to think about.
  • Include an activity if you can. You might print out an activity page from online sources.
  • Include a stamp and envelope if you wish. You may get a return note or make it possible for the resident to write a letter to their loved ones.

**Please DO NOT send food or candy. Many residents have special dietary needs or are diabetic.**

Where to send?

Any out-of-home living facility you know of in your area.  Address your mail to:  Any Resident – Spreading Kindness

When to send?

Now! And as this situation continues.

We thank you!

Talking About Life: Abortion and Assisted Suicide

Join us for our March meeting where the discussion is LIFE.

What are the facts?  How should we approach others? Learn how to influence the public and legislators to make pro-life decisions.





March Meeting


In the years since the Supreme Court ruled in Roe v. Wade making abortion legal in the U.S. over 60 million children have died, their mothers and families have been harmed, and our nation has embraced a culture of death that increasingly threatens the weak and unwanted of all ages with destruction.

Laws are important to protect innocent life and we encourage legislators to pass laws that protect life from conception to natural death.  Judges who will uphold the original guarantee of the Constitution to life are important and we pray that our courts protect the right to life at every opportunity.  The efforts of pregnancy care centers and hospice programs that provide guidance and practical support are important.   And you are important!

Join us for a discussion and training to learn how to speak so that lives may be saved.

If you are not a member of SUNACRW, please email sunacrw@gmail.com for details on how to participate.
