ODU Brightens the Days of Senior Citizens

In a world of social distancing, finding ways to serve and connect with others in our communities is exceptionally difficult. Feelings of isolation are prevalent to many, especially for those in nursing homes. SAL members at Old Dominion University found a creative way to make a difference and connect with the seniors in their community.

ODU chapter members wrote letters to residents and staff at nursing homes to help motivate them during what many consider lonesome times. Chapter president, Camhuong Le, said that writing the letters “was an easy way for members to indirectly brighten up the day of those within our community”.

We are proud of our ODU chapter members and thank them for finding ways to connect with and serve their community.
