Social Isolation on Blast: CBS Features Kimberly Lewis & IDSGT
I Did Something Good Today was featured on CBS Los Angeles in their People Making a Difference segment, showcasing the incredible work carried out by our team of dedicated volunteers and founder, Kimberly Lewis.
The effects of social isolation are challenging for anyone, but for seniors, those effects can be truly devastating to their health. Alcoholism, depression and anxiety are just a few of many symptoms seniors experience from social isolation or complete isolation due to a disability.
“[I Did Something Good Today] was born out of people crying out for help, unsure of what to do.” – Founder, Kimberly Lewis
The CBS Los Angeles segment highlights the Foundation’s programs available to seniors, including the health and housing solutions offered to seniors through our GoldenTALK senior chat line. Kimberly’s interview with CBS News’ reporter, Lesley Marin, was captured in front of the team’s delivery truck, loaded with food and supplies ready to be distributed to the senior community as part of the weekly delivery program. .
“Not only are we helping seniors who are in need, but we’re also helping people who want to get out there and volunteer, but feel they can’t [because of COVID-19].” – Founder, Kimberly Lewis
