Students from the Trésor-du-Boisé elementary school and seniors from the Les Verrières du Golf retirement center in Montréal spent six months writing letters to each other as part of Domtar’s PaperPal program.
Domtar‘s EarthChoice Ambassador program helps improve literacy, sustainability, and health and wellness. In 2016, we spent more than 4,000 hours volunteering in our communities. See what we accomplished in this year-end review.
Even in the digital age, letter writing is still an important vehicle for communication, and it offers cognitive benefits to children and adults alike. Our PaperPal program brings letter writing to life for kids and seniors.
Domtar understands how meaningful a handwritten note or letter can be. Our PaperPal program connects generations through letter writing. Recently, PaperPal was honored to be featured in an NYC gallery.
Research and doctors recommend the benefits of handwriting for both children and senior citizens. PaperPal is a program that partners an elementary school and a retirement community to write letters to one another.
