GenLynk: Connecting Community Members
At SCI we are concerned about keeping people socially connected and supported, in addition to meeting important basic needs during this COVID-19 crisis.
We are pleased to support Winchester High School student Ben Burns as an outreach partner for the GenLynk program he is developing to match seniors with volunteers in a phone buddy system.
A number of people have expressed interest in volunteering for something like this. There has definitely been a big interest in volunteering; Ben has a good number of initial volunteers signed up.
We could really use your help spreading the word to senior citizens who would like to get matched with someone for regular phone calls. Please share this information with seniors you know! Of course you can sign up as a volunteer too, but spreading the word is our top priority for this now.
Attached you will find a flier that can be shared. Seniors interested in signing up for the program can fill out the form here or call SCI at 781.935.2244 x 5. Leave your name and number and you will be contacted promptly.
