Belle’s Tool Box will stamp and mail letters to local seniors

39th Ave S, a neighbor donates food during the “Stay Home” pandemic cycle.

The crew at Belle’s Tool Box has wrestled with how to best use their “tools” at this time, and has reached out to a senior center in the neighborhood.
They are encouraging children to draw and write messages to an elderly person confined to their home. Place in a plastic bag and leave in the box located on the Belle’s Tool Box gate on 34th St., just south of 42nd Ave. Owner Lucy Elliott will see that the messages and drawings get to homes of folks who could use a little cheer!
Regarding concern about handling items, Elliott said, “I will handle the items appropriately, and am confident the staff of Longfellow/Seward Healthy Seniors will, as well. Connections between old and young seem especially poignant right now.”
