The Love and Support Our Seniors Deserve

Bring Smiles to Seniors is a non-profit organization dedicated to spreading joy and kindness to elderly individuals across communities. Through various initiatives and programs, they aim to uplift the spirits of seniors who may feel isolated or lonely. Volunteers and supporters of Bring Smiles to Seniors send cheerful greeting cards, letters, and handmade crafts to seniors in nursing homes, assisted living facilities, Meals on Wheels programs, and those living independently. These small gestures of kindness have a profound impact on the recipients, fostering connections and reminding them that they are valued and remembered. The organization's mission revolves around brightening the lives of seniors and promoting compassion and empathy within society.

How to Participate 

There are several ways that you can participate in our program. We appreciate any and all help we receive.

  • If you are a card maker, we welcome handmade cards that are either blank or have messages written inside. We ask that you sign your card with at least your first name and state if you place messages in your cards. Please send the card unsealed, with the card tucked under the flap of the envelope. Cards with messages inside are preferred. However, we do use blank cards with our decorating partners. General everyday "thinking of you" cards are best since we don't have any personal information on the community residents. Holiday cards at the appropriate times of the year are also welcome. Companies or schools who wish to participate are welcome to use store bought or your hand made cards for your activities.

  • We are unable to use cards such as birthday, anniversary, get well, thank you, or congratulations. We do not have personal information on residents in the communities to properly use these cards.  If we do receive them, they are donated to senior communities, but due to a large quantity of these types of cards being received, we ask that you refrain from sending those.  

  • We also welcome store-bought cards that are either blank or have messages written inside them. Additionally, our organization is open to receiving donations of postage stamps and stickers.

  • Monetary donations can be made via credit card by clicking the donate link at the top of the page. Alternatively, checks or money orders can be made out to Bring Smiles to Seniors and sent to our address below. All donations go directly to the program as our staff consists of unpaid volunteers.

  • If you are affiliated with a senior community and are interested in either delivering cards in your area or having us send cards to a community, reach out to us via email and we can add your requested community to our delivery rotation list.

  • If you know a senior whom you would like us to send cards to on a regular basis, please email us their information. We will add them to our mailing list. The only thing they will receive from us regularly is a card.

  • If you are interested in writing to seniors directly, we have a private Facebook group called Lola's Smile Bunch you are welcome to join after answering a few brief questions. 

  • Tax receipts are provided upon request at the end of the year.
