Be a Pen Pal
The Center for Community Health and Health Equity (CCHHE) is seeking employees to volunteer as pen pals to Grade 2 and 3 students in nearby elementary schools. Volunteers will receive one letter every other month from their student pen pal and write one letter every other month back. All correspondence goes through CCHHE staff, so no personal information is exchanged. Pen pals will have the opportunity to meet in person twice a year at designated events. If you are interested or to learn more, contact Pamela Audeh at 617-264-8740 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
