#GivingTuesday 2020 - Cathy Kass-Aten from Little Brothers - Friends of the Elderly
This podcast is a part of our Giving Tuesday series and today we talked with Cathy Kass-Aten from Little Brothers - Friends of the Elderly. 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. They offer to people of goodwill the opportunity to join the elderly in friendship and celebration of life. “Flowers before bread” is their founder, Armand Marquiset’s, motto. It expresses his philosophy that everyone needs love and friendship in their life. It is the human touch that makes life worth living. The organization’s motto “where service to the elderly begins by being a friend” reminds us that the most important gift they bring when they knock on the door is the gift of friendship. With every service they provide and with every gesture that they do, they do it in the spirit of friendship. Their services are all free of charge to the elderly. Donations are being accepted through December 1st.
