Take a moment and think about the people in your life. Who among them lives alone? When is the last time you reached out to them? As you’re planning your holiday celebrations, are you finding ways to include them?
At ACL.gov/CommitToConnect, you will find activities that people can do alone or with family and friends. You’ll also find links to resources that will help you find programs and activities in communities across the country. We’ve even compiled gift ideas that can help people connect. Please help us share these suggestions with the people who need them most.
If we all Commit to Connect this holiday season we can make the season brighter for millions of Americans. And if we all Commit to Connect beyond the holidays and beyond COVID-19, we can make an even bigger difference. Ultimately, we can work toward eliminating social isolation altogether. Will you join me?
