A letter writing group called Letters for Hope will host its kick-off event from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, Feb. 25, 2017 at the Bluffton Community Library, located at 120 Palmetto Way. The goal for Letters for Hope is to encourage involved citizens to voice their concerns to politicians in a constructive and compassionate manner through hand-written letters. Limited writing supplies, including paper, pens, envelopes and postage, will be available.
Parents are encouraged to bring children. Letters for Hope will be an educational opportunity for elementary school students who are just learning how to write, as well as high school students who are looking to become more involved in their community. A tutor will be available to help those who are having trouble constructing their letters. Worksheets with tips on how to write a letter, along with addresses for local politicians, also will be provided.
Register by calling (843) 415-3490 or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Kid-friendly snacks and coloring books will be provided for little ones. For more information about Letters for Hope, please visit lettersforhope.org.
