THANK YOU!!

Last night 150 members of the LBFE family gathered at the Hyatt Regency Boston Harbor to support our intergenerational programs to relieve isolation and loneliness among the elderly.

It felt so good to see everyone, and to be seen!

Thanks to your kindness and generosity we surpassed our goal and have raised over $66,000 - that means our first Digital Dividends participants will have access to technology and training, our CitySites programs will build more intergenerational friendships, and LBFE can continue to meet the moment and bring joy and companionship to our older neighbors and friends.

Thank you to everyone who came out and made this possible and to our sponsors:

From the Community

"When 5:00 comes it’s like “what?! it’s over?!” I wish [the students] could stay longer! "
- Michelle
"It’s fun to start conversations and learn from the seniors"
- Gaetan
"I truly enjoy the students. I like hearing about them, and we all share our stories."
- Marion
"It’s beneficial, especially to that type of person that might not come out on their own to socialize. I might have been one of those people myself."
