Letters of Kindness is a volunteer program that utilizes the kindness and thoughtfulness of people that want to get involved and have a positive impact on individuals and their communities. Devoted Healthcare is collecting cards, letters, and other mailings to hand deliver to hospice patients to help comfort and soothe their  loneliness or social isolation. Bringing joy and a smile to patients is what Letters of Kindness aims to accomplish. We believe that a gesture of kindness can brighten the day of anyone.

A Letter of Kindness

We are collecting cards, letters, postcard, and other mailings to be hand delivered to hospice patients who are on service with Devoted Healthcare. Anyone can participate. Writing solo, with friends, or even schools and organizations.

Be the reason someone believes in the goodness of thoughtful people.
