About

Our program is in need of caring volunteers to visit one-on-one with homebound seniors. Volunteers sometime read newspapers and books aloud, play cards, talk about sports or politics... Most importantly our volunteer friendly visitors enjoy the company of senior citizens and are good listeners. The elders we serve live in Danvers, Marblehead, Middleton, Peabody or Salem.
