Volunteer Opportunities July 20, 2020 Volunteer Musicians Musicians to Bring Joy to the Elderly These are unprecedented times. Many older adults in the community and those who live in facilities are more isolated than ever before. In an effort to promote social distancing, facilities, residences and nursing homes are shutting their doors to the outside world. Now more than ever, older adults need our love and support! According to a Pennsylvania State University and UC Irvine study, small gestures in everyday life, like showing compassion and performing random acts of kindness, help us feel loved. Our organization is connected with Bethany and Carewest nursing homes. Our goal is to help tackle elderly loneliness and social isolation. We are looking for musicians who are willing to donate a few minutes to play and show their talents for the elderly and brighten their day! No music preference or minimum time commitment. We would love to have you visit the nursing home and play a few tunes. For questions and to volunteer, get in touch with us is via email firstname.lastname@example.org.
