To help our community feel connected during a time when many may feel isolated, we’ve partnered with a group of local kindergartens and childcare centres to bring you a localised Pen Pal Program.
This exciting initiative allows you to safely meet and write regularly to your very own Pen Pal friend, discussing your personal hobbies, interests, local history and more!
Register your details below to receive your FREE Eastland Pen Pal Pack in the mail, or collect through our Order & Collect drive-through service and receive an extra tasty treat for yourself!
How does it work?
1. Register your details via the Register Now button below to opt in to the Pen Pal Program.
2. Receive your Eastland Pen Pal Pack in the mail*
Australia Post are currently experiencing delivery delays due to a high volume of parcels in their network.
Please keep in mind your mail may take additional time to get to its outlined address, in addition to your return mail being received. We thank you kindly for your patience.
3. Select who you will write to! It could be a friend or family member you can't see in person at the moment, or you can select a local organisation from the Community List below that you would like to create a Pen Pal friendship with. Once you have selected who you are writing to, write your letter to them requesting your Pen Pal allocation and share some general details about yourself!
If writing to our community partners, please ensure to write “Pen Pal” on the envelope so the team know what the letter is regarding.
Hint! You may want to include your age, interests and why you decided to join the Pen Pal club!
4. Post your letter to your chosen friend, or community organisation using the postal address listed below.
5. Wait to hear back from your new Pen Pal and enjoy your new friendship together.
