ORGANIZATION: Jewish Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Boston

Volunteer to spend quality time with Chris: a 48-year-old adult man with disabilities who lives in Winthrop and enjoys watching movies! Chris’s hobbies include learning sign language, browsing the internet, and playing video games. Chris has four siblings, and he loves celebrating holidays with his family! He is hoping to be matched with a peer of any gender or religion who is close to his age (in their 40s or 50s). It would also be helpful if his Friend has a car to pick him up for meetings.

Friends get together one to two times per month and make at least a yearlong commitment. Match support is provided by Clinical Match Specialists. Volunteers from all religions, races, ethnicities, and backgrounds are welcome!

Learn more and apply at jbbbs.org! Email Tania@JBBBS.org with any questions. Join the JBBBS family and make a difference in Chris’s life.
