JACKSON HEIGHTS: Friendly Visitors desperately needed!!!

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Sunnyside Community Services

Older adults in Jackson Heights, Queens who need someone to visit them. (More than one volunteer is needed). If you have an hour a week you could dedicate to these lonely seniors, please contact me! Friendly visiting is an easy, fun, rewarding way to become involved in your community.

Friendly Visitors are volunteers who visit homebound seniors for about an hour each week in their homes.

Volunteers reduce feelings of isolation, and help improve seniors' mental and physical health. Seniors are able to stay in their homes and communities longer. Volunteers can dramatically improve the quality of a seniors' life.
