With COVID having such negative impacts on senior living, Emporia Main Street wanted to find away to brighten the day of residents and encourage people to shop local. People can select a resident (or several) from the Pen Pal Program and send correspondence through the mail or drop off letters and packages to the Emporia Main Street office and deliveries will be made on Thursdays.

If you want to put together a package and save on postage, drop off your items off at Emporia Main Street, 727 Commercial, Monday -Thursday between 8am and 5pm. A special thanks to Coffelt Signs for helping with this program.

Due to the overwhelming response from the community, Emporia Place is not currently seeking new pen pals. If you have previously written to a resident, you are welcome to continue! Thank you to everyone that has participated!
