Welcome to our February newsletter! This month, we want to take a moment to honor and celebrate the aging community, who bring so much wisdom, experience, and value to our society. At Heart2Heart Outreach, we are committed to ensuring that our aging loved ones receive the support and care they need to live fulfilling lives. In this newsletter, we will share stories and updates about our work with the aging community, and highlight the importance of fostering connections through an outpouring of LOVE!

Damaris Pena cooks a homemade meal for a senior couple once a week, but her visits are not about the food.
What’s more important is the time she spends playing dominoes and conversing. We named Damaris the Volunteer of the Month for February because of her thoughtfulness and how she listened for the best way to serve her senior friends.
“She has gone above and beyond in getting to know them and growing wonderful friendships,” said Heart2Heart Volunteer Coordinator Antonella Salerno.
