Tis the season for Workplace giving and I would love the opportunity to come to your workplace and tell you about Friend to Friend America and how your donation can make a difference in the quality of life for a senior in your community.
We are excited to announce that we received a grant from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and the state of Washington that will staff one full time person to serve in 3 local nursing homes as a video call liaison to ensure residents can connect with friends and family far and wide. The lucky homes that get to participate in this program for year one are:
- Foss Homes in Seattle
- Judson Park in Des Moines
- Burien Nursing and Rehabilitation in Burien
Thank You Friends!
Our Second Annual Friend to Friend America Sunset Social at the Columbia Tower Club was a huge success. We raised $20,000 to help combat Senior Isolation and Loneliness!
The evening featured Wine Tasting, Appetizers, a Silent & Live Auctions, and the lovely Seattle Skyline as seen from the 76th floor of the tallest building in Seattle.
A big Thank You to everyone who attended, those who donated items for the auction, the Columbia Tower Club, and all of our valued volunteers who contributed in making this a terrific evening!
Stay tuned for our 2023 event!
