One Community

  • 11 people are interested

One Community is a nonprofit organization in Fort Greene, Brooklyn. We facilitate a program called the Sharing Network, which connects homebound neighbors for social and educational calls with each other once a week. Each call includes a group 5-8 seniors and a moderator speaking about a topic of their interest. There are currently 14 groups, including Trivia, Cooking, Music, Yoga, and more.

We are in need of volunteers to make calls, at your own time, pace, and availability, to reach out to seniors in our area and offer them the chance to join the program.
For more information, or to volunteer an hour or two, reach out to Olivia Grondy at 929-367 8479 or grondy@onecommunitynyc.org.

Your help could make a huge difference - current members have expressed that the calls have alleviated pandemic-caused depression and reconnected them with friends from the senior center they haven't been able to visit in months. Thank you!
