LBFE in Boston do a great job and make the difference for a lot of elders

We had a great evening last week for Friends on the Harbor 2021! Thank you to everyone who came out to be a part of it! We enjoyed a beautiful view of the Boston skyline, lively music from the Soft Touch Dance Band, and amazing stories of the intergenerational community at the heart of LBFE’s mission.

"Season Two" of the Friends on the Harbor episodes will be released soon - so if you missed the event, you'll be able to tune in on YouTube!

Great photos!

Did you know September is Intergenerational Month?

We celebrate intergenerational friendships all year-long through our CitySites and Digital Dividends programs.

When asked about the value of intergenerational programs, our older friend Valerie says "It's important that [younger people] can see me as a whole person". And that's the beauty of IG work - everyone, regardless of age, can give, receive, teach, and learn.

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."
