Send a Little Piece of Your Heart To Oakridge Gardens

August 31, 2020

We are asking people from all over to send a piece of their heart to the staff and elders at Oakridge Gardens in Menasha, Wisconsin. Back in June, Oakridge experienced a terrible fire, which ended up displacing all their residents to other local care communities. We want to help those elders feel more at home by receiving mail with encouraging, heartfelt words that they can proudly display on their walls. 

Watch local TimeSlips Artist Elyse-Krista Mische show you how to make your own heart postcard here. You can also check out her instructions in this PDF.

Please send postcards to staff and elders at:

Oakridge Gardens
Att: Lori Van Ess
1700 Midway Road
Menasha, WI 54952

Be sure to enter the number of postcards you send here (make sure to click the dropdown box and click on, "Oakridge Gardens". The list is alphabetical). 

We have a BIG, Audacious goal to send 20,000 postcards to elders in care communities by Fall of 2020. Your "heart" helps everyone!
