The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
If you live in Brooklyn or travel to Brooklyn on a weekly basis and can commit to one hour a week for at least 6 months, this is the program to be part of! You won’t regret it!
The majority of our seniors live alone without any regular visitors. Having outlived spouses, siblings, friends, and even their own children, they are often extremely isolated. Almost every one of our seniors don't interact with anyone - ever - except the person who we match to visit them.
Our Friendly Visiting program provides much-needed companionship for these homebound elderly in Brooklyn... but we need you!
Visit us at www.friendlyvisitingny.org and find out more or simply enter your info on our site to be contacted. We will meet with you and match you with the senior that is right for you!
