Walk to End Elder Isolation

Strolling Friends

May 15, 2022 - June 30, 2022

Come Stroll with Strolling Friends

This old Lady isn't doing any road races but a leisurely promenade around Jamaica Pond in a great T-shirt with a party afterward is my style. I invite you to please register to take part in the event and/or to make a donation via my team, the "Strolling Friends" by clicking the link below. If you prefer to donate by check rather than on line please make your check payable to FriendshipWorks and mail it to FriendshipWorks 105 Chauncy Street Boston MA 02111 Please put Strolling Friends in the memo line. Since 1984 FriendshipWorks (f/k/a Match-Up Interfaith Volunteers) has matched volunteers in Boston and Brookline with their elderly neighbors free of charge. Volunteers are as young as 18 and as old as 100! It is great for people who just want a friend to do things with sometimes. Volunteer programs include: “friendly visitors” visiting elders in their homes for friendship and support; “medical escorts” who accompany elders on their medical appointments; “PetPals” who visit assisted living facilities with their pets; “friendly helpers” who assist with short-term tasks; and music programs including concerts in assisted living facilities and on local public television. For more information on the wonderful work this organization does please see the web page.
