The People Helping People program unites high school and collegiate volunteers with local senior citizens in the community. As a consequence of the pandemic our services are executed virtually and over the phone in order to best help the most vulnerable community members - seniors. This is why our volunteers will have the opportunity assist our community’s seniors with friendly phone calls, interactive visual art projects, live performances, and tech help at NO COST. The seniors we serve are 55+ and in need of assistance.
