ORGANIZATION: Sunnyside Community Services

Excited to get to know people? Interested to hear stories from an older adult?

There is a growing need in Western Queens for Friendly Visitors who can visit with a homebound older adult.

Friendly Visitors promote feelings of positivity, reduce isolation, and help older adults to feel that they are part of the larger community.

Let's not neglect the ones in our neighborhoods. Reach out today to make a difference!

Please note that all volunteers must be over 18 years old and live in New York City, New Jersey or Connecticut.

Please reach out to Jennie Thomas, the program coordinator, to learn more about how you can change a senior's life!
