Little Brothers Friends of the Elderly Talks Leadership Transition and #GivingTuesday

In the third and final PHF Podcast episode previewing #GivingTuesday 2022 we welcome Carol Korpela and Cathy Kass-Aten from Little Brothers Friends of the Elderly to the podcast. Kass-Aten is stepping down as the executive director of the Hancock-based nonprofit opening the door for the longtime employee Carol Korpela to take the reigns. In the podcast they talk about the lengthy history of the organization, reminisce about some of the good times in the old Ripley House, discuss the move to their Hancock office and Korpela talks about her vision for the future of the organization. Little Brothers Friends of the Elderly is one of 26 nonprofit organization participating in #GivingTuesday this year with Portage Health Foundation. We're still a few days away from the day itself, but already more than $170,000 has been donated to the organizations. PHF is matching up to $200,000 in donations this year with the money being spread to the organizations based on how much money is donated to them.
