Card Program

Have you heard about the Senior Card program? It has existed for many years, quietly engaging and providing outreach to seniors in the Lafayette community. We send cards to seniors for celebrations, sorrows, or to let someone know that people are thinking about them. We hope receiving a card brings a smile to someone's face and brightens their day. We would love to hear from you. Please email requests to olderadults@lafayetteco.gov

Crafters for Charity

Share your time and talents with us to support community members. Knit, crochet, stitch, or help create something to:
