Give the gift of friendship to pediatric patients and seniors, isolated due to Covid.

Earlier this year, Holly lost her husband and moved into an assisted living facility. Holly found herself in a new place, in a new city, in the middle of a pandemic, lonely and scared.

Then, one day she received a call from Elizabeth.

Elizabeth was a StudentsCare Buddy at the children's hospital near her university’s campus. In March, when Buddies were no longer allowed in the hospital, StudentsCare started offering virtual activities for pediatric patients and expanded their mission to offer friendship and support to another vulnerable population–– seniors. When Elizabeth heard of StudentsCare's new virtual Senior Buddy Program, she jumped at the opportunity to get involved.

Elizabeth calls Holly each week. She even taught Holly how to Facetime. Holly loves seeing Elizabeth’s smiling face. They talk about movies and books. Holly shares sweet stories about her late husband. Elizabeth pictures it in her mind like The Notebook love story. Holly says Elizabeth reminds her of herself as a twenty-something.


You can give isolated seniors, the gift of a trusted friend this holiday season.


StudentsCare has trained over 270 college students who have provided thousands of hours of individualized support, friendship and laughter to pediatric patients and isolated seniors in 12 hospitals and 4 senior living facilities across the country.


Be Holly's Hope.
