Rayna Katz was Caught Doing Something Good !

Rayna Katz, a 7th grader at I.S. 24 had an idea during her summer break this year. Due to the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, the sleepaway camp she attended the last 3 summers was closed, her soccer team had not yet played, and TikTok had been occupying too much of her time. With the school year approaching, Rayna decided she wanted to do something to make a difference in someone’s life.

Rayna realized how challenging 2020 had been for many people. She knew it was difficult to be face-to-face with people during pandemic. There were so many restrictions in place and everybody needed to be so cautious. Rayna’s idea was to develop a pen pal program, but at first, she did not know who the letters would be sent to. Through a little bit of online research, Rayna learned that residents in nursing homes were not allowed to have visitors and there could be an opportunity to interact with elderly people in need of companionship during this very different year.

She contacted nursing homes in the local community to see if there was interest in a program where students would write letters to residents in the homes. A couple of nursing homes thought this was an incredible idea and said they would be happy to participate.

Rayna immediately reached out to her friends and other peers to see if they would help with writing letters and spreading positive vibes to residents in the homes, and many of them were excited to join her.

Rayna would be happy to have more middle school students join her service organization. Please follow her on Instagram @letters.with.a.purpose for all of the details.
