      We reprise our 2020 and 2021 Yale CLE Virtual Day of Service project contributing letters of love to the elderly in need of uplift and encouragement.  In 2020, we helped set a record for the nonprofit started by Jacob Cramer, '22 (Ben Franklin) -- 14,234 letters of love sent to 233 senior communities in the United States, UK, Australia and Canada. The Cleveland effort sparked national and international interest. See some of the photos of appreciative recipients, letter writers and helpers at the project's Instagram account.

      This virtual project is again part of our Yale CLE Day of Service, now marking its 14th year. So, take a moment anytime in the month of May to handwrite 14 more letters of love, warmth and encouragement (large, legible writing please!), keeping away from religion, politics and personal topics, illustrate with colorful art, if you care to do so, and mail with their envelopes to

      Love for our Elders

      Cleveland, Ohio 44124

    • May 7, 12:00AM – May 31, 11:59PM
      Tarrant Area Food Bank
      Add to Calendar 2022-05-07T00:00:00 2022-05-31T23:59:00 America/New_York Yale Day of Service: TX, Fort Worth - YCFW Virtual Food Drive

      Yale Club of Fort Worth will hold a monthlong Virtual Food Drive for Tarrant Area Food Bank, which distributes food to pantries in 13 counties. Summer is a difficult time of year for food banks. The reason? Families with children who had been receiving free or reduced-cost breakfast and/or lunch at school need to find a way to replace those meals during summer break. So they turn to their local food bank or pantry for assistance.

      Every $1 you donate will provide food for 5 meals. Your support truly makes a difference in the lives of our neighbors in need. Our YCFW goal is to raise $1,000 or 5,000 meals. Our campaign will end on May 31.

      To participate in YCFW's Yale Day of Service, please donate at our YCFW page.

      Thanks for you support!
