Thank you for visiting my fundraising page for FriendshipWorks' Walk to End Elder Isolation!

FriendshipWorks’ mission is to reduce social isolation, enhance the quality of life, and preserve the dignity of older adults in Greater Boston. They serve older adults (60+ years of age) by matching them with volunteers for friendship and assistance at no cost. This organization serves all of Boston, as well as the surrounding areas of Brookline, Cambridge, Somerville, and Newton.

In the fall of 2022, I applied to be matched with an older adult in Brookline to provide social companionship once a week as a Friendly Visitor. I was matched with Eileen, a caring and humorous woman who was born and raised in Brookline. She loves playing the board game Rummikub, and she taught me how to play so that we could play together during our visits. We usually play two or three games together per visit, and she often beats me!

Eileen is also very proud of the accomplishments of her many great-grandchildren and loves showing off the photos she gets from their families, including ones from their sports games, cheer competitions, and their new puppies. In her free time, Eileen enjoys keeping up with Boston sports - lately the Red Sox games. She is also looking forward to being able to sit outside and go on walks together in the warmer weather. 

Please consider making a donation today to support the programming that FriendshipWorks provides to help end elder isolation in the Greater Boston area!
