Opportunity Details

Letters of Encouragement

United Way Suncoast provides leadership that improves lives and creates lasting community change by mobilizing the caring people of our communities to give, advocate, and volunteer. UWS focuses on education, financial stability, veterans’ services and helping those impacted by COVID-19 by assisting with their immediate needs.
Volunteers can write messages of encouragement to any the following groups:

• *Teachers – show appreciation for their hard work and dedication to educating our youth.
• *Students – encourage students to do their best in school throughout the school year.
• Veterans – provide support and appreciation to veteran military men and women.
• Seniors – uplift the spirits of an elderly stranger.

*Notes for teachers and students will not be distributed until the 2021-22 school year, so please keep that in mind if writing to either of those recipients.

Be as creative as you like - you can use stationary or hand-made note cards. Individual envelopes are not required, but please do not seal them if they are used as they need to be screened before being distributed.

Please do not refer to specific holidays or occasions as the letters may not be shared before the holiday takes place.

Once complete, label each set of messages with their recipient type and be sure to include your full name, company name (if applicable) and return address, then mail to:

UWS Volunteer Team
Letters to (insert recipient type)
5201 W. Kennedy Blvd., Suite 600
Tampa, FL 33609

Make sure to submit your volunteer time through this form for our team to review.
