Spread holiday cheer — volunteer!
We’re preparing to throw three family-style parties on Christmas Day, so our elders are surrounded by friends, conversation and laughter. Our volunteers make it all possible! Drive an elder to a holiday party and celebrate together.
All our elders’ holiday gifts have been sponsored! But we accept new seniors into our program each week. You can still support the Holiday Gift Program by making a contribution.
Little Brothers – Friends of the Elderly has been dedicated to relieving isolation and loneliness among Chicago’s elders since 1959.
Women and men 70 and older who are aging alone have a family in Little Brothers. For 60 years now, we’ve been providing steadfast friendship to thousands of elders who no longer have friends and family to rely on. All of our programs and services are always offered at no cost, and our organization receives no government assistance. We depend on the generosity of donors to bring conversation, companionship, celebration and connection to the elders we serve.
Your gift of any amount has a powerful, direct impact on the life of a lonely Chicago elder. Your generous support connects our elders with meaningful friendship, engaging programs and vital services.
