For anyone looking for a pen pal or wanting to brighten the spirits of shut-in seniors, the Northern Cheyenne Elderly program on the Cheyenne Reservation in Montana is looking for pen pals for its seniors.

Since the beginning of the lockdown on the Northern Cheyenne reservation, the Shoulderblade Complex residents haven’t been able to leave or see their family members.

A pen pal system is a nice way to socialize while keeping our elders safe.

If you’re interested, here is the contact information:
