Senior Birthday Party at the Pomeroy

Help throw a monthly birthday party for low-income seniors. Volunteers will decorate, prepare goody bags, make special birthday treats, and then lead residents in a game of Bingo during the party. With your help, seniors will have a fun opportunity for socialization that helps decrease loneliness and isolation. Residents are also made to feel special by having their birthdays recognized.

  • Easy El access: Red Line
