Volunteer from the comfort of your own home or while out-and-about from your cell phone. Our Phone Companionship opportunity is an easy way to make a big difference in someone else's life and in your own. It's the perfect way for you to share your warmth and kindness with our Elder Friends, who enjoy the company of a phone chat and the expectation of hearing from a friend. A simple call made in the thoughtful spirit friendship can mean the world to an elder living without family and friends to share and talk life over with. Reach Georgia at 612-746-0732 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more details or access our volunteer application directly: https://littlebrothersmn.org/volunteer-application/

Little Brothers - Friends of the Elderly’s (LBFE) sole purpose is to foster friendships between people over 65 experiencing loneliness and isolation and volunteers of all ages so both can enjoy the rich rewards of togetherness and companionship. The Minneapolis/St. Paul chapter of LBFE was founded in 1972 and ever since has been serving as a bridge that carries the warmth and kindness of volunteers and the warmth and kindness of elders into each other’s lives - all in the spirit of a dream to change the world through friendship and put an end to social isolation among people over 65. LBFE welcomes folks of all generations to volunteer including children under 18 volunteering with a parent, young adults, those in mid-life, in retirement and those "glowing" older. Because when it comes to creating meaningful connection in our lives, no matter our age, we all have something to give, something to share and something to receive. The LBFE family embraces the desire of all its members to find purpose, joy and community through friendship. LBFE supports such friendship through its Visiting Volunteer, Phone Companion and Friendship and Flowers programs.
We'll work with your schedule.
