2020 GIVING FROM HOME

Giving From Home for the Holidays!

 

Amidst the pandemic, LBFE is embracing the challenge of providing elder support services remotely, from phone check-ins, Tech Allies 2.0 technology training, to socially distanced grocery shopping and prescription medication pick-ups/drop-offs, peer to peer phone calls, mailing out care kits with essential items and treats, birthday calls, and, remote intergenerational program. More than 350 elders are currently participating in our programs and we continue to engage with more than 1500 volunteers in our network. We are doing what we’ve always done – bringing people together in the spirit of friendship, connecting the generations, and building a stronger community.
