I've been writing a series of blog posts on my personal blog about a Non-Profit I've been working with, Seniors with Skills , an innovative organization helping socially isolated seniors.
Seniors With Skills - How You Can Help
Bridging the Age Divide - Students Helping Seniors
Each of these posts ends with a section about how to help. The group primarily needs help getting senior centers or isolated seniors to sign up for the Online Buddy Program. Though we've all been reaching out, the senior centers are a bit overwhelmed right now and often don't return calls or emails. If you know of a senior center or an isolated senior who might benefit from the Online Buddy Program, see below about how to let them know about the program.
Join the Online Buddy Program
Do you know anyone who is facing social isolation who might want to join the Online Buddy Program? Please have them contact SWS at email@example.com .
Do you know of a senior facility that houses seniors who would benefit from receiving video chats and might want to be part of the Online Buddy Program. Please have them contact SWS at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Do you want to volunteer to be an Online Buddy? Fill out this form .
Spread the word
Do you know anyone (news, blog, social media?) who might be interested in featuring this story to raise awareness of this cause, and encourage more seniors living at home who are facing social isolation to join the Online Buddy Program?
