Well, Dorot allows you to do just that; it’s a community service organization that provides opportunities to connect with, and just positively impact, the elderly population living in residential care facilities! In addition, through this program, Seniors get to positively impact the teens who reach out, by sharing their advice and wisdom and helping them put their best foot forward.
