Mission: Little brothers - friends of the elderly is a national network of non-profit volunteer-based organizations committed to relieving isolation and loneliness among the elderly. We offer to people of goodwill the opportunity to join the elderly in friendship and celebration of life.
Programs: Lbfe's accomplishments include the following:- through our visiting advocacy program, 244 elders worked directly with staff members on an ongoing basis, receiving visits, phone calls and advocacy. - in our friendship and flowers program, a total of 203 elders received monthly visits and deliveries of treats and flowers from a team of 113 volunteers. - lbfe hosted 77 social events for elders in fiscal year 2014, which had a total attendance of 1,922 (attendance of 1,328 from our elder clients, and 594 from community-at-large elders). Through these events, a total of 2,170 meals were provided.
For a number of years I drove to pick up and deliver seniors going to the Lil Bros' festive holiday dinners. The notable aspect was obvious in their logo, a rose. In other words, they put on affairs with flowers and entertainment, not just calories, although the meals were themselves quite fine, including sparkling wine.
