With these changing times due to the COVID-19 virus we are asking Volunteers to make telephone calls instead of visiting Clients.

Maybe you are home thinking of what you can do to keep yourself occupied. This is a terrific opportunity to share stories with each other.
The telephone call does not need to be that long. Its just about sharing some time with someone who maybe feeling very alone and isolated.

We have a lovely wheelchair bound senior who spends most of her days alone. This Client does not have much of a family. She loves old movies, and also loves to knit and crochet (she can even teach you!). She has 2 very friendly dogs but would love someone to come and chat with her and even sharpen her computer skills.

If you can get to Travis and can spare one hour per week, please contact Rosanne McAllister at 718 981-6226, ext 141 for further information.

Thanks in advance for your kindness.
Your kindness will benefit someone who is alone and isolated.
