Senior Chat: make a friend make a difference! Volunteers needed to chat with seniors over the phone!
Sunnyside Community Services
Make a difference in a senior's life by making one call a week! As a Senior Chat volunteer, you will be matched with one senior to develop a friendship by chatting over the phone.
With your phone buddy, you can:
- Develop a friendship with a senior
- Hear interesting stories
- Video chat with Face Time or Zoom
- Talk about favorite books & movies
- Play games like chess online
- Attend virtual workshops together
- Mail letters, cards, and photos
Please note that all volunteers must live in the New York tri-state area (New York, New Jersey, Connecticut) and be over 18 years old.
Reach out to the program coordinator, Emma Finn, to learn more about how you can change a senior's life!
