A letter writing group called Letters for Hope will host its kick-off event from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, Feb. 25th at the Bluffton Community Library, located at 120 Palmetto Way, Bluffton, SC 29910.

The goal for Letters for Hope is to encourage involved citizens to voice their concerns to politicians in a constructive and compassionate manner through hand-written letters. Limited writing supplies, including paper, pens, envelopes and postage, will be available.

Parents are encouraged to bring children to this event. Letters for Hope will be an educational opportunity for elementary school students who are just learning how to write, as well as high school students who are looking to become more involved in their community. A tutor will be available to help those who are having trouble constructing their letters. Worksheets with tips on how to construct letters along with addresses for local politicians also will be provided.

Letters for Hope aims to inspire more people to become involved in their national and global communities by regularly writing letters to legislators about policies that concern them.
