Volunteers wanted for Friendly Visitor Program

Feb 16, 2017

Mattapoisett — Be a friend and change a life through the Friendly Visitor Program, sponsored by the Mattapoisett Senior Center to provide companionship and support to seniors who express feelings of loneliness and isolation.

Through weekly home visits, volunteers develop meaningful, long-term relationships with seniors who appreciate the company, look forward to the visits and have fascinating life stories to share, according to organizers.

Often volunteers discover they receive as much as they give, according to center members.

Refer someone or become a visitor. Contact Susan Keir, outreach coordinator at 508-758-4110 or outreachcoa@mattapoisett.net.
