“Thank you so much for the Xmas gift and the wonderful visit with Joanne and the three girls.  It did so brighten my day.  God bless all of you.  It is true angels do walk among us.”

For many elderly, isolation comes with growing older. Little Brothers—Friends of the Elderly extends a helping hand to those 60 and older who are without regular support from family and friends. We provide friendly visiting, programs and services that combat loneliness and promote independent living.

“Our mom talked about Little Brothers all the time.  She would look forward to every visit.  The quality of life that you all have provided for her meant so much to her and to us.  Words cannot express how thankful we are for the amazing, wonderful people that you all are and the help you have provided.”  – The family of Marcia K. Veker

Wood Cutting—We cut, split, deliver, and stack firewood for those elderly who continue to heat their homes with wood.

Christmas Packages—We assemble and deliver gift boxes of non-perishable food that include easy to prepare meals.

Food Bags—Each month we deliver a grocery bag of non-perishable food to the elderly who are in need.
