Friendly Aid Provides Outreach to Seniors
Wellesley Friendly Aid continues our outreach efforts to seniors and disabled residents of Wellesley Housing Authority public housing.
Activities include Sunday afternoon socials that promote socializing and offer activities and refreshments. Participants love playing bingo for prizes and enjoying various goodies.
At other times, gift bags filled with goodies are dropped at residents' doorsteps. These are usually holiday themed, such as the Valentine gift bags delivered in February or plants in the spring.
One recent participant expressed thanks to the WFA volunteers:
"Many thanks to the enthusiastic organizers! The Fall Social event gave us an opportunity to eat and play bingo together, and everyone had so much fun. Looking forward to the next one. Thank you."
