PEN PAL PROGRAM
Are you interested in connecting with people through the lost art of letter writing? Join our Pen Pal Program and be matched with an adult volunteer who is equally interested. The act of letter writing has tremendous benefits for both the writer and the recipient.

FRIENDLY PHONE CALLS
Would you be interested in receiving a weekly call from a like-minded volunteer? We have many friendly SJJCC trained volunteers looking forward to connecting with you.

TECH HELPLINE FOR THE 60+ COMMUNITY
At a time where we’re online more than ever, a little technical support goes a long way. UJA-Federation of New York’s Tech Helpline, in partnership with Older Adults Technology Services and Senior Planet, provides advice over the phone to questions such as:

  • How do I get an attachment to open?
  • What happened to my WIFI?
  • How does someone see me on a Zoom call?
  • I touched something, and now the screen is blank

The helpline is free and is available in English, Russian, and Spanish. Call 1.888.510.6299 Monday-Friday, 10am-4pm for help. This program is generously funded by the Solomon Family Foundation and the J.E. & Z.B. Butler Foundation.
