What did FriendshipWorks need?

Vern helped FriendshipWorks with critical graphic design needs over the course of 4 weeks, in areas like designing virtual flyers, program materials, and other branded digital assets.

Why is this project important?

Both projects are essential to FriendshipWorks. The 4-page mailing and insert are key pieces of our annual fundraising campaign that we send in the fall. The newsletter is an annual publication to inform, educate, and invite donors and volunteers to learn, participate, and contribute to the mission of FriendshipWorks.

This project will save us $2,397, allowing us to enhance/develop additional programming needed to support older adults during this pandemic.

About FriendshipWorks

Ending Elder Isolation, Creating Connections

FriendshipWorks' mission is to reduce social isolation, enhance quality of life, and preserve the dignity of older adults in Greater Boston. We accomplish this by recruiting and training volunteers of all ages, faiths, and backgrounds who provide friendship, advocacy, education, assistance, and emotional support.
Fun Fact

Fun Fact

Fun fact: we changed our name from Match Up Interfaith Volunteers to FriendshipWorks in part because people thought we were a romantic matchmaking agency. We pair isolated elders with volunteers for friendship and to help with tasks and appointments.

This is the 6th project posted by FriendshipWorks.
