CHIPPEWA FALLS — A group of senior citizens in Chippewa Falls are looking for pen pals.

They took to Facebook to find new friends to write to.

The coronavirus pandemic has got all of us looking for that meaningful interaction with friends. For some, it has been easier to do than for others. Writing letters is a good way to connect with friends near and far and maybe even make a new one.

These senior citizens all live at the Chippewa Falls Assisted Care and Memory Care home. Because of the coronavirus, it has been hard for some of them to see friends and family in-person. That's why they are looking for new pen pals to write to.

In the Facebook post, these pen-pal-seekers list their hobbies so you can choose who to write to based off of mutual interests.

Here is where to address the letters:

Our House Senior Living - MC
{Resident’s Name}
105 Marrs St.
