Cards for Seniors

Scout Cares: Card Writing for Seniors

The Dan Beard Council, Boy Scouts of America would love our Scouts, Scouting families and volunteers to participate in Oasis Senior Advisors’ Cards for Seniors Campaign that collects cards from people across the community and delivers them, following safety protocols for each senior living community, to the seniors.

During this time of Coronavirus (COVID-19), many senior living communities have very strict restrictions which makes the seniors feel isolated and alone due to not being able to have visitors. This service project is one you can do from the comfort of your home with your family, and follows the Scout Law of being Helpful, Friendly and Kind. Help brighten a senior’s day by participating in Dan Beard Council’s service project by creating a beautiful card for a senior!
