Covid Companions

Why we started: In response to the hardships of Covid 19.

How we got started: A platform to help recipients connect with companions if they've suffered a loss.

Where are we now: We have expanded the overwhelming feeling of loss to entering foster care, having a friend move away, or even challenges at home.

What direction are we in: Covid Companion is committed to helping with the feeling of loss by forming lasting friendships between volunteers and recipients through a penpal program. 

Our names are Ryan Fenster and Shreya Sriram and we are beyond excited to brighten the lives of children during these difficult times.  Our biggest goal is to give back and make a difference in the world.
