In honor of Noa’s 5th Birthday this year, we would be so touched and honored if you would join us in sponsoring the Friendship Circle’s Friends @ Home program for this upcoming year. We would also love to celebrate with you at the WALK on Noa’s birthday, Sunday, September 12 at 10am at Votee Park in Teaneck.
The Friends @ Home program is the flagship program of the Friendship Circle. Every week, pairs of teenage volunteers visit participating children at their homes, offering friendship and sharing activities. While the child is being happily entertained, the families enjoy a regular respite.
In the last year and half, we have all been affected by the isolation brought on by the pandemic. Friendship Circle made it a priority to bring much needed friendship and respite to kids with special needs and their families. Friends @ Home resumed outdoors after lockdown, and children and their families counted down the days until their friends came again. In a time of so much uncertainty and isolation, these weekly visits were a beacon of hope for so many families.
Please consider registering for the walk by joining our team or making an online donation. If you'd like to make an offline donation, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll send you the information.
