enhance belonging and reduce the social isolation of seniors. The pandemic has increased concerns of isolation, but there are still
things we can all do to promote social connections. Whether it is reaching out to help a neighbor or family member, or taking on
a more formal volunteer role, we can safely make a huge difference for people who need a helping hand or conversation.
Our collaborating partners have the following volunteer opportunities at this time:
