We are launching a project called Dear GG!
Dear GG stands for “Grandpa” or “Grandma”. We are asking for kids in Brooklyn Park to make a card, color a picture or write a short letter to a local senior citizen and address it to “Dear GG”.
This project will give kids a creative way to bring joy to a senior during a time when they are unable to receive visits from family or friends due to COVID-19. We believe this is also a way for kids to have a fun project that will benefit someone else in their community during these unusual times. Create the card, letter, or artwork at home and drop it off on August 1 or 2 between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.
The cards or letters should be signed with the child’s first name only and can be dropped at the Brooklyn Park Police Department during the days/times listed below. The police department will deliver the cards and letters to seniors living in Brooklyn Park!
Drop off time and location:
Saturday, August 1 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Sunday, August 2 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
North Precinct, 5400 85th Ave.
The collection bin will be located outside the front entrance.
