Friendly Aid Provides Additional Outreach to Seniors

Friendly Aid continues to reach out to senior and disabled residents living in public housing, adjusting activities based on COVID-19 Town protocols.

-- In June 2021, WFA, in partnership with National Charity League, Inc., resumed our Sunday afternoon socials, now held outside. The participants enjoyed coming together for ice cream and bingo once again.  The weather in September and October allowed for these afternoon socials to take place in September and October as well, producing many smiles.

-- In December 2021, WFA provided holiday gift bags containing socks, lotion and other goodies at a "grab and go" event in place of the customary holiday festivities that could not be held.

-- In February 2022, Valentine's Day gift bags with lots of treats and loving messages were delivered by members of the Wellesley High School Key Club in a "knock and drop" manner.

Spring will be welcomed with the delivery of a plant and other seasonal items.
