Thanks to your generous support, nearly 800 Chicago elders will receive a friendly delivery of a homemade turkey dinner and a festive celebration bag to remind them they are not alone.
Elders aging alone will spend Thanksgiving Day feeling loved by their LBFE family. Want to help but not yet an LBFE volunteer? Sign up for an upcoming virtual volunteer orientation!
Little Brothers – Friends of the Elderly has been dedicated to relieving isolation and loneliness among Chicago’s elders since 1959.
Women and men 70 and older who are aging alone have a family in Little Brothers. For over 60 years, we’ve been providing steadfast friendship to thousands of elders who no longer have friends and family to rely on. All of our programs and services are always offered at no cost, and our organization receives no government assistance. We depend on the generosity of donors to bring conversation, companionship, celebration and connection to the elders we serve.
Your gift of any amount has a powerful, direct impact on the life of a lonely Chicago elder. Your generous support connects our elders with meaningful friendship, engaging programs and vital services.
