A few weeks before Valentine’s Day, about two dozen volunteers came together on a Saturday morning to make Valentines—but not for their special someone. The recipients? Seniors citizens served by FriendshipWorks, an organization that seeks to alleviate the isolation faced by the elderly community.
The approximately 25 people that met to make the cards all belonged to Gay for Good (G4G)—Boston. Founded in 2009 in Los Angeles, G4G brings together LGBT+ people to volunteer with local environmental and social welfare organizations. G4G has chapters in 11 cities across the country, from Pittsburgh to Seattle and Dallas-Fort Worth to Chicago.
