The 48th Annual Thanksgiving Day Dinner

Thank you Grace Church, Cobble Hill Lifecare and 84th Police Precinct for helping us host another successful Thanksgiving Day Lunch! Over 125 volunteers carved 20 turkeys, cut pies donated by Brooklyn neighbors and served turkey and fixings to about 175 older Brooklyn adults who joined us. Additionally volunteers delivered 115 meals to housebound Heights and Hills clients. A special shout out to Laura and her kitchen crew for their efficiency in prepping the lunch for service, as well as those who cleaned up after the festivities. Click here to see photos.

Volunteer to be a
Friendly Visitor

It takes only an hour or two a week to give an older neighbor the gift of friendship. Our next New Volunteer Training is December 11th from 6-7:30 at Heights and Hills, 81 Willoughby Street, Suite 302.

Whether we have met you in person yet or not… this workshop which is required for all volunteers will introduce you to Heights and Hills and provide more information on the range of volunteer opportunities available with Heights and Hills.  The training also prepares volunteers to spend time with older adults in the community safely within our Volunteer Program guidelines. We will review expectations, boundaries and common concerns.  You will leave ready to enjoy your volunteer work and  knowing where to turn to for support.
