Pen pal program

Shriners Children’s Twin Cities has started a pen pal program!

Pen pal program

Are you or your child interested in sharpening those letter-writing skills and connecting with another Shriners Children's patient? Patients will be assigned a special pen pal that is of similar age and diagnosis. With the help of snail mail, you will be able to make a new friend within the Shriners Children's community.

If interested, please contact Michelle in the child life department at or 612-296-6247.
