2021 Nengajo Postcard Sign-Up
Calling all JETAANC members of Northern California and Nevada! As the pandemic continues on, people continue to stay at home, and seniors have it worse. Seniors are more vulnerable to the COVID-19 virus, and their family and friends may be visiting them less frequently. Thus, we invite you to help us to send heartfelt and thoughtful messages to seniors to help brighten their day. Postcards will be sent in the winter to senior members at San Francisco's Kimochi and East Bay’s J-Sei through their meal delivery program.
Writing Postcards for Seniors (sign up by November 15 | mail by December 11)
The person who signs up must be a JETAANC member, but family and children are invited to write messages on the card. Make it a family-fun event!
Postcard writers have the option to write 10 postcards or more.
JETAANC will mail you blank postcards based on the number you sign up for in mid-November (your mailing address is requested in the sign-up form). Envelope and postage stamps will be included for mailing the completed postcards.
Postcards must be mailed back to JETAANC at PO Box 2873, SF, CA 94126 postmarked by December 11, 2021 to provide enough time for us to pick up and deliver cards.
