Last year, as the uncertainties of COVID-19 left a void in connection within the Lancaster County and beyond, we reached out to senior communities to create a list of places where people could send Christmas and holiday cards that could use more cheer in their lives. 

While there may be less uncertainty this year, there is still a strong need to reach out to your fellow man this season. As Lancashire Hall Marketing Director Michelle Young-Nell told us last year, this generation of seniors relied on letters to connect with the people in their lives. 

Below is a list of senior communities that have confirmed that cards may be sent. If you represent a senior home or community that would like to be added to the list, please e-mail
