FRIENDSHIPWORKS: Matching Volunteers with Elders since 1984

About

FriendshipWorks is looking for "Walking Buddy" volunteers to visit with lonely older adults one day a week and get them outside with a healthy walk around the neighborhood. The Walking Buddies program combines the benefits of exercise and social contact by helping elders to engage in safe, healthy movement while building friendships. Your support will make it possible for a frail, isolated senior to get out in their community and enjoy the benefits of staying active.
