Be a Winter Buddy! Help make sure senior citizens in Newton weather snowstorms well! Newton at Home, a member non-profit organization dedicated to helping Newton seniors age in their own homes, is looking for volunteers who can help in a variety of ways.
Being a winter buddy means checking in with your buddy before and after storms—something that the whole family can do. This program has a 30-minute training session, and requires a CORI check. For more info, contact Jacki Katz at email@example.com
We always need drivers who can give rides to seniors and make a new friend while helping someone get to a doctor’s appointment, the supermarket, a social event or the airport. Finally, NAH is also looking for those with knowledge in the health and wellness area to join the NAH Health and Wellness Committee to plan events for seniors.
Volunteer as much as you can at your convenience, and know that you have made a difference in a Newton senior’s life. You’ll meet interesting people and share great conversation along the way! If you are willing and able to help, please contact NAH’s volunteer coordinator by email or phone, 617-795-2560.
