The York County Area Agency on Aging is seeking volunteers for its Friendly Visitor program.

A volunteer Friendly Visitor is someone who is willing to share an hour or two each week with a homebound elderly person. Many of these elderly people have very limited social contact. These visits are often the high point of their week, whether spent reading, writing letters, playing cards or board games or just chatting.

Areas of need are Spring Grove, Hanover and Glenville.

Training will be offered for this program in early spring.
