ANNOUNCEMENTS regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19)


Our office will be closed from Tuesday, March 24, 2020 through Monday, April 13, 2020 per Executive Order 2020-21 by the State of Michigan.

WE WILL CONTINUE TO PROVIDE ESSENTIAL SERVICES including Medical Transportation and Grocery/Prescription Delivery.

We will also continue to provide our Mission in Motion programs which do not require in-person contact. They include Virtual Activities, Friendship Mail, and Telephone Reassurance.

You can still contact us as we work out of our homes by calling 906-482-6944 or emailing

Be Well!


The health and safety of the elderly in our community and our volunteers is of utmost importance to us. Therefore Little Brothers – Friends of the Elderly is cancelling our Easter dinners, Easter home meal deliveries, and Easter holiday visits. We are committed to providing our other services, some with modifications to ensure everyone’s safety. For more information, please call (906) 482-6944 or TOLL FREE  1 (855) 886-LBFE (5233) or click on the phone button on the bottom right of this page.

We came to this decision after thoughtful consideration based on the information from the CDC and the Western Upper Peninsula Health Department regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19).

During this time, we want to remind everyone to look out for your elderly neighbor with a phone call or by offering to pick up prescriptions or groceries. If you find someone in urgent need, please call Little Brothers – Friends of the Elderly. If you are healthy and have more time to volunteer, please let us know as we anticipate more requests for help from our elderly community.
