For the last few years the PowerFilled Youth Team has been having bi-monthly paint-nite date nights with seniors residing in local retirement homes in and around the GTA. However, due to safety concerns around the spread of Covid-19, we have had to cancel these events until further notice.
However, we have come up with an fun new way to keep connected with your senior friends.
Introducing our new PFYTO Paint Pal project.
How it Works
1. Interested seniors will complete the contact information section below. (or have someone close complete the online contact info section)
2. The senior participant will be matched with a PFYTO team member.
3. PFYTO team members will create a paint project and complete it 3/4 of the way. They will also write up a short card for their "paint pal" and package it up for mailing. (Note: each package includes craft materials to finish the project, the painting as well as a written card, blank card, stamp, envelope.)
4. Paint pal Package will be mailed out to senior participant with a card and instructions + materials for completion of the "Paint Pal project".
5. Senior Participant has the option respond to the Paint Pal, and also take a picture of the completed Paint project to send back with the card.
**Open to senior citizens residing in retirement or residential homes in Ontario. Once submitted please allow 10-14 days to receive your paint pal package. In the interest of safety, consider waiting a few days before opening your package upon receipt.
