Where Service to the Elderly Begins by Being a Friend
Little Brothers-Friends of the Elderly is a national network of non-profit, volunteer-based organizations committed to relieving isolation and loneliness among the elderly. We offer to people of good will the opportunity to join the elderly in friendship and the celebration of life
Your gift enables us to continue supporting our elderly neighbors through friendship and service. In addition to our signature program, Friendly Visiting, we provide a variety of services all founded in friendship, including: Medical Transportation, Firewood to heat their homes, Holiday Meals, Food Assistance, and more.

We're currently planning our Easter celebrations. Volunteers will be delivering meals to approximately 1,000 elderly friends throughout five counties including: Baraga, Houghton, Keweenaw, Marquette, and Ontonagon.
In addition to a traditional Easter meal, each elder will receive an Easter basket filled with candy, a flower, and a short, physically distanced visit.
Because of the pandemic, we are unable to accept homemade desserts and are limiting in-kind donations. Due to this we are expecting increased expenses for Easter. Your donation will ensure our elderly friends are remembered on this special holiday.
If you would like your donation to be directed to our Easter meals, please make a note in the designation field.
