Friendship Club

Summer Activity to Bond Falls










As a donor to Little Brothers you could choose to join our "Friendship Club". As a member you will receive a monthly letter written by staff or volunteers giving you a more intimate look at the elderly people we serve. These stories are all based on real experiences, which we have encountered in our day-to-day work.

These activities are indications of the thousand of interactions between our old friends, staff, and volunteers. There is a story behind each of these activities and the individuals involved and we'd like to share a few of them with you.
