Service for Seniors

SAL members at USM have been busy during the month of February.  They began their month with Letters of Isolation, where members wrote encouraging messages to senior citizens who only speak Spanish, an underserved population in the area. They plan to expand this project in the future.  Because writing a message may be difficult, the organization has created a Facebook page-

The chapter also hosted a Valentine’s Day tabling event.  Members handed out candy, cupcakes, and flowers.  People stopped by to write Valentine’s day cards to senior citizens as well as enter a jar guessing game.  This was a great public relations event in addition to serving the community of senior citizens.
