At the I Did Something Good Today Foundation, we are committed to combating social isolation among seniors through a variety of innovative and compassionate programs. Each initiative is designed with the needs and well-being of our elders in mind, offering not just activities but gateways to connection, nostalgia, and improved health.

Each of our programs offers a unique way to touch the lives of seniors, bringing light to their days and comfort to their hearts. Whether through conversation, music, exploration, or phone calls, we’re dedicated to enriching the lives of the senior community. Explore the programs of our heartfelt mission and get involved as a volunteer, participant, or supporter. Together, we can make a world of difference.
