Grand Connections

It is heartwarming to see the outpouring of community support that has emerged during this during this crisis and there is no better time to find new ways to become more connected to your neighbours. 

The City of Kitchener is looking to bridge the gap between our younger citizens and our older neighbours through the Grand Connections writing program.Youth are encouraged to submit electronic letters, cards, artwork and messages of hope that City staff will share with an older adult in our community during their regular support calls. 

The goal is to let isolated older adults know that you are thinking about them and they are still connected to our community while we need to be physically apart. Encourage your neighbours and schools to get involved and help brighten a senior’s day! 

Please do not include any personal information including full names or addresses in your letters or uploads.
