Two local men with developmental delays and legal blindness (one in East Hartford and one in Rocky Hill) are looking for activity buddies.
One or two visits per month to play large print cards, checkers, go to the movies, an outdoor concert, bowling or out for a hamburger can make the world of difference for one of these men. It doesn’t take much to change and life, and the life you change might be yours!
If this sounds interesting to you, you could be a sidekick or mentor to one these special local men. Their moms will defray activity costs.
