More About Students launch a hotline with jokes, stories and support for isolated seniors

There is now a phone line for senior citizens to call if they feel isolated or lonely during this pandemic. The phone line was started by high school students from Calgary, Canada. The students call it the Joy 4 All Project.

Senior citizens can call the number below to hear positive pre-recorded messages or jokes. This is a way for senior citizens to feel connected to the outside world.
