Rye is BETTER TOGETHER
A phone call a day keeps Rye Senior Citizens' loneliness away!
Thank you for your interest in being a Rye PHONE-PAL!
Now more than ever our seniors need to know they are not alone and that our community cares.
Because older adults are at a higher risk for severe illness due to COVID-19, they are being urged to stay home. Many are at home alone, which is lonely and isolating. We hope to brighten their days with phone calls from local students.
Thank you for your interest in brightening the day of a senior citizen in our community. This is fun and easy -- simply sign up here and provide one or two things you like to do or are interested in -- like sports, dance, language, writing, politics, etc.
We will email you the name and phone number of a local senior resident who may have a similar interest! We'll even provide a script for that first call. It's our hope that you will call and talk with your new Grandfriend for a few minutes several times a week during this time when they need to self-isolate due to the coronavirus . We will even let you know if it's their birthday!
Complete this sign up and we will be in touch!
