Friends of The Lewinsville (FOL) is a non-profit organization that has provided financial support since 1982 to the Lewinsville Retirement Residence (LRR) for programs, activities and services to support residents’ physical, mental and spiritual health. The Friends of the Lewinsville support for LRR complements the housing assistance residents receive from federal and county programs. Friends of The Lewinsville helps to fund the daily meal program for LRR residents, funds the weekly shuttle bus for local shopping, and also funds the library, education and recreational programs, monthly birthday parties, special holiday parties, and occasional bus trips to special locations. During the coronavirus pandemic, FOL covered the entire April costs for the meal program (about $35,000) so that residents could retain more of their income for possible emergency needs, and FOL funded the cost of providing each resident with a bag of groceries in case they would need to quarantine for two weeks. As of mid-June, LRR had no reported positive cases of Covid-19 (residents and staff) and attributes part of that success to the programs provided by funding from the Friends of The Lewinsville. To help continue these great programs and to offset these costs, please consider making a donation of any amount. If you have any questions or would like to help, please contact Alan Stevens at avslc11@verizon.net.
